According to the Hound’s mate, a total of 14 people from the wider arts community were given new year gongs; 10 people for services to music, two each for services to dance and film, and one for literature – with one person even doubled up, serving both theatre and dance – in the list!

It is not hard to see why the farming sector does not feel the love from the current Government!
