An administrative receiver has been appointed to Northern Ireland's best-known country music venues.

The Mellon Country Hotel, on the A5 road between Omagh and Newtownstewart, is a popular hotel and restaurant that has played host to big names on the country scene, including Lisa McHugh, Derek Ryan and Johnny Buckley.

Several dates are lined up over the summer with top acts.

It also hosts weddings and business functions.

KBC Bank appointed Keenan Corporate Finance as administrative receiver to the company that owns the hotel, Mellon Country Hotel Limited.

Its last accounts, to the end of January 2015, showed liabilities of just over £673,000.

No one was available for comment at the hotel last night. Keenan Corporate Finance also refused to comment, while KBC Bank was not available.
