Newry and Mourne will be well represented at this year’s Ulster Tatler Awards with no fewer than eight individuals and businesses shortlisted for a prize at the prestigious ceremony.

The Ulster Tatler Awards celebrate the achievements of local individuals and businesses, the likes of which fill the pages of the province’s leading lifestyle and society magazine each month.



The awards are celebrating their tenth anniversary this year, with the magazine itself now on the shelves of newsagents across Northern Ireland for over 50 years.

In addition to awards for businesses in the beauty, fashion, interiors and hospitality industries, as well as a dedicated award for charities, the ceremony also recognises familiar faces who have helped put Northern Ireland on the map, in the form of Celebrity of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year and the showcase Lifetime Achievement Award.



Among the local nominees shortlisted are Sonya Donnelly of Beyond Vanity, Newry (Businesswoman of the Year)  and Joe McGlinchey of Bronze Salons/ Insanity Tan (Businessman of the Year).

A host of local businesses will also be hoping for victory on the night including Bridgeen King Hair, Castlewellan and Zen Day Spa, Newry (Beauty Salon/ Spa of the Year).



The Ulster Tatler Awards in association with Optilase Eye Clinic features 14 categories in total voted for by the public, as well as the celebrated Lifetime Achievement Award which has been presented to some of the province’s best loved individuals including Phil Coulter, Gloria Hunniford, Barry McGuigan, Gerry Armstrong, Dame Mary Peters OBE, Brian Friel and Michael Longley.

Shortlists in each category have been compiled from votes cast by members of the public with judging panels of media and industry experts then selecting the winners to be announced at the glamorous ceremony which will take place on September 14 in the iconic Belfast City Hall, presented once again by much-loved TV personality Pamela Ballantine.



“Northern Ireland has produced a wealth of talent in business, sports and entertainment,” said Chris Sherry, editor of Ulster Tatler. “The difficulty our judges have year after year in choosing just one winner highlights just how high the standard is in the province.

“We are looking forward to what will be a particularly exciting awards celebration as this year we mark the 10th anniversary of the Ulster Tatler Awards, with local celebrities and surprise performers making it an unmissable evening,” added Chris.
