Newry Café mogul Lianne McCooey has been selected as one of the 18 entrepreneurial masterminds to take part in the BBC One Show ‘The Apprentice’ airing on Wednesday 2nd October we can reveal.
McCooey has been going through what she described as an ‘exhaustive process’ to be selected as the Apprentice of 2019 as she hopes to go a step further than south Armagh compatriot Grainne McCoy.
Ms McCooey told Newry Spud:
“I’ve been going back and forth to London to take part in the selection process. I can’t see myself being bate if truth were to be towl. I don’t want to end up like Grainne McCoy though; last I heard she’s working as a shelf stacker in Around-A-Pound.”
