End of an era in Portadown
Plus, dad avoids jail for letting kids drive HGV on M1
Good morning, it’s now just six days until our third annual People of the Year Awards. Next Thursday evening, the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium will see some incredible people from across the county celebrated for what the remarkable things they have done. Last year was special and we’re really excited about making this year’s even more special. And we’re delighted to have the one and only Barra Best compering on the evening. It’s going to be another great night.
