I log onto Bel Tel every day, more & more articles now are on premium access only looking for payment to read - ridiculousNorthern Ireland could soon have its first floating hotel after a businessman announced ambitious plans for a three-star venue on the River Bann.
Seamus Carey is seeking planning permission for a hotel with 36 cabins on a 70-metre Norwegian vessel at his Cranagh Marina Complex in Coleraine. He hopes the hotel would be up and running next summer, with the creation of 50 jobs.

I log in every day too, and I think it's a pretty weak paper, but in the scheme of things with the Standard and the Manchester Evening News at the top of the 'local' ladder, it's merely mid table.The Bel Tel has new owners but it’s been crap for years and their journalism isn’t worth paying for IMO.
Proximity to the data analysis firms growing and possibly interested in setting up in Belfast, which leads to more money.Would be interested to see a conclusive report on the benefits of these types of developments. From what I can see, they place added stress on the electricity network, pump loads of heat into the atmosphere, all to store gigabyte after gigabyte of shyte. And create minimal jobs. Beyond the prestige of possibly having a big tech name in the country, am I missing something?
