The Eglinton Bar in Skelmorlie will reopen on Thursday July 15 following its closure after a covid-19 outbreak.

The bar owners had asked residents to get tested following several cases in the village pub, with the decision made to close the pub for several weeks to protect staff and customers.

Owner Gareth said: “We wish the staff and any customers a speedy recovery, and we would like to thank all of you that got a test done.

“When we reopen please continue to abide by the covid-19 rules.”
