The 25-year-old female founder of a civil engineering firm is among four finalists from Northern Ireland who will battle it out for the title of EY Entrepreneur of the Year tonight in Dublin.

It's one of the most sought-after business accolades for individual achievement, with previous Northern Ireland winners including Dr Peter FitzGerald of Randox and Brian Conlon of First Derivatives.

The quartet of finalists includes Catherine O'Neill, who founded civil engineering firm Amelio Group. Amelio now employs around 50 people with offices in Belfast, Dublin and Gloucester, England.

And Jack Dobson of meat firm Dunbia in Dungannon is also nominated, along with Terry Knox of car replacement parts firm CD Group in Antrim, and Alyson Hogg, the founder and chief executive of fake tan and skincare firm Vita Liberata in Ballyclare.
