It's a big weekend...
Good morning. It's been a busy week where we've been out and about. We have chatted with a number of businesses in Armagh about the impact of the rising costs; there were quite a number of mixed responses on that one. That's a story we're currently working on. We also attended a local policing meeting where local issues around Portadown and Craigavon were discussed. We'll have some updates from that in the coming days too.
Meanwhile, it's a big weekend for Armagh footballers as they are hoping to book their place in an All-Ireland semi-final for the first time since 2005...that's pretty much a generation! This Sunday will see hoards of Armagh supporters descend on Croke Park in what is a sell-out at GAA HQ. Despite it being a double header, the orange is expected to illuminate the venue...
Anyway, on with the news...
