As Beyonce once raved, it was all about being bootylicious.

For the women of Dromore West however, it's about feeling 'beautilicious'.

That's the name of a new beauty salon situated on main street.

Lorraine Killgannon, from the area, took a brave move at setting up her own business in the village.

She said: "I had been working in Bernie's Beauty Shop in Sligo.

"I saw an opening in Dromore though, as the nearest beauticians is either in Enniscrone or Ballisodare.

"That meant people had to drive at least half an hour away."

She added that setting up her business wasn't all that challenging.

"I studied Business in IT Sligo for four years before doing Beauty, so I had the business background that I needed."

Lorraine said that it's important she's from the area too.

"Business is good so far, although it is becoming a bit quieter as the wedding season ends.

"Although with Christmas coming, I'll be busy with parties."

Her salon offers a range of treatments.

"The minimi wraps, just out since the summer, are proving really popular.

"So too are the likes of semi permanent lashes, tanning and the nail bar."
