East Coast Adventure Centre is currently investing considerable time and money into the refurbishment of Warrenpoint Baths, the base for all our water sports activity. The work is being carried out in a bid to upgrade facilities for our customers and clean up the overall appearance of the Baths. However, despite our best efforts some people in our community are determined to deface the baths and in turn Warrenpoint. We arrived this morning to find the recently painted walls facing the Whistledown “tagged” with the name BARRY.

It is up to all of us to keep an eye on the baths and report any suspicious activity. If you see kids or anyone for that matter in the baths after hours or when the gates are closed, please call the police. If you see anyone causing damage or drinking around or near the Baths, again call the police.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident they should contact crime stoppers immediately.

0800 555 111

or the local non emergency line

0845 600 8000

Just keep painting is the answer I'm afraid to say Barry and his crew will get the message over time.
Well done not just on the painting but the work done cleaning up around that area has it was bad :thumbs: :thumbs: .

Hopefully - it's very disheartening when the community and local business people put work into the building (as you yourself know only too well) and then somebody thinks it's ok to deface it - Mind you, there will be people about down there a lot more often very soon - watch this space as they say ;)

Now iam not trying to be a smart arse here but i ask you now who among us in this forum was a saint when we were running about the point.AS THE BIBLE SAYS, need i say more. The point is it happens we must deal with it,when it is kids then the parents have to pay the fine if the courts are involved and alot of these parents can,t afford the fine.If you find out who Barry is make him paint over it but ffs do not hound the kid for life.Ramie Kelly once said to me after the kids knocked down fresh built wallS on the site at the Bridle Loanan.Whats the point Art? i can bring them to court but it,s the parents that have to pay,many of these people i grew up with. We can also return to the dayswhen arse holes and thugs take are kids out and shoot them for A.S.B:What about calling on the kids to paint that part of the baths using the theme windsurfing or other water sports.YA WANA PAINT MY WALL WE DO IT TOGETHER;This is your logo and invite to these kids. USE THE LOCAL PAPERS:

We already did that Art, there are 2 murals inside the baths painted by school kids - and I have to say since we did that there has been very little anti social behaviour down there - most of the kids in the town are actually very well behaved and certainly don't deserve to be discredited by one or two bad ones. Anyway, this was done outside, and I doubt very much it was a child that did it. The area that occurred in is used by drinkers and is a wee "den" for them to avoid being seen from the road. Anyway, there is also the slight probability that "Barry" is not the name of the person that painted that.

And to answer your question, I dare say I was fairly close to a saint as I knew if I did anything wrong I would have been kicked from one side of Church street to the other :rotfl:

I believe there is a graffiti proof paint, washes clean with a garden hose.

Thye kids have plenty of money to deface the property, also to find the funds to buy alcohol and other items???? Surely they could pay their own fines....

"If you do the crime, prepare to do the time".... It just takes one to be made an example of..

Art`s idea of themed graffiti painting is a good move..whenever the teenagers put up their work, I could nearly guarantee they would`nt let anyone come along and deface it...

That is awful when that happens.
I wouldn't think that was the name of the
culprit, unless he is trying to get someone
else blamed.
Hopefully it won't happen again.

Fools names are like their faces.

Always seen in public places. (That's an oldie)

A job for some super sleuth. Its unlikely that the culprit will be located but, should the locals get lucky and find out who the artist is, he/she should be publicly watched doing the clean-up. It is a little disheartening for the people who endeavour to keep the building in good condition.
