Ulster Tatler editor Chris Sherry said: “The difficulty in choosing just one deserved winner seems to become greater every year and that speaks volumes on just how high the standard is across the province. Every single category was bursting with worthy nominees.

“I want to extend massive congratulations to each of the winners and all those shortlisted, who should all be exceptionally proud of what they have achieved throughout the last year. I also want to personally thank everyone for their continued support.

“This year we are celebrating the fifteenth year of the Ulster Tatler Awards and the event was a complete sell-out in the stunning St. Anne’s Cathedral so we couldn’t have asked for a better evening. The night was a huge success.”
