Watch: First look at this week’s Mid Ulster Mail

This week’s Mid Ulster Mail front page focuses on the latest jobs figures for the region - which make for pleasant reading.

Not so pleasant, is the fact that almost 500 people are waiting for social housing in Magherafelt, which is the front page of our south Derry edition, along with the retirement of Wendy Houvenaghel, just hours before the Commonwealth Games.

We also have details of a major peace vigil in Cookstown to mark the outbreak of the First World War, and awards for the Laurel Villas’ Heaney tours in Magherafelt, and the Burnavon arts complex in Cookstown.

There is a special Milk Cup preview, and the rising golf star at Moyola.
