THE owner of one of Northern Ireland's premier wedding venues has described her “incredible frustration” at the impact COVID 19 has had on her business over the past eight months.

Mrs Emily Mackie, of Lissanoure Castle, told the Chronicle she hasn't had a decent night's sleep since March:“I really feel for the brides” she said, “it’s incredibly frustrating!”

Mrs Mackie urged politicians in Stormont to “be more grown up” and not so “childish” after last week's 11th hour agreement debacle saw existing COVID 19 restrictions extended for another week.
