FUN IS OUR BUSINESS: THE STORY OF BARRY’S AMUSEMENTS.

FunIsOurBusiness[Book: James Fairley – 2006 – 21x30cm – 272 Pages – Many B&W photos]. “Barry’s” (Port Rush, County Antrim) will signify little to most people in the British Isles. To nearly everyone living in Northern Ireland, however, it is synonymous with all-consuming fun by the seaside. For after some eighty years, Barry’s Amusements in Co. Antrim, the biggest and brightest amusement park in Ireland, has acquired the status of an institution. Selected Chapter Points: Barry’s Predecessors at Portrush; Early Years (to 1923); The Business Prospers (1924-28); Belfast (1929-55); Bangor (1940-87); Portrush (1940-2005). ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
