The winners are announced...
and it's always better late than never!
Yes, we know, the newsletter is later this weekend, maybe we’ll make it a theme if you prefer reading it on a Saturday? This wasn’t intentional, neither was it an oversight. We are a small team but as we proved on Thursday night… we are one heck of a team - because we once again pulled off The Armagh I People of the Year Awards. These things don’t just come together, it’s months of planning, rehearsals, choosing menus, collating video. you get the drift.
There were smiles, cheers and even a few tears on at Armagh Observatory and Planetarium as our event hosted by Barra Best saw 12 winners named. Of course it’s not all about winning and a special mention must go to all the finalists - each and everyone of you are exceptional.
