Powersharing is set to return to Northern Ireland after the DUP announced early this morning that it had accepted a UK deal to re-enter the Assembly and the Executive.

The announcement could see Northern Ireland’s devolved government sitting again for the first time in almost two years.

The Impartial Reporter hit the busy streets of Enniskillen and spoke to local people about their reaction to the news.

We asked those on the street two questions:

1) What is your opinion on Stormont returning?

2) What issue would you like to see our politicians sorting out?

Jason Leonard, Enniskillen took an optimistic outlook to the news: "It's good to have it up and running, but hopefully they will be able to work everything out.

“There are pay rises that have to be given to the nurses and all those people which is worth millions. I think if they are due it, they should be given it.

“The working person on the ground has been underpaid, but when they get their few quid, the province prospers, and everyone is happier.

“These pay rises would be good for everyone and put a few extra quid in people's pockets."

Christopher Beacom, from Ballinamallard, said: "It's good to see, but it will also be interesting to see what they have agreed and haven't agreed.

“In my line of work, there are issues with checks on bits and pieces coming in. It's more difficult because of Brexit there is a cost incurred.

“That's the main issue that impacts me, but obviously things like education need to be sorted out as well."

Phoebe Grace, Fivemiletown also saw the positivity to it all but queried whether it would all work out. 

"It's a good thing, but whether they are going to do anything useful is a different story.

“I would be worried that it will bring us into what's going on in the UK at the moment with the decisions that Rishi is making, things like banning vapes when there's wars going on.

“Perhaps we would be better off not involved with it, as I think it's turning the wrong way and I don't want it to be brought here."

Leah McCusker, Lisbellaw: "I am indifferent to politics so I wouldn't have much of an opinion on it, but I suppose having Stormont back can only be a good thing."

June Kaczmarek, Enniskillen thought it was  "about time they got back to work".

“They haven't been working but have been paid for it. None of us get that!

“I would like to see the NHS up and running properly because that is so important to everyone.”
