Dome put us in debt.

A CHILDREN'S charity which performed in the Millennium Dome on St Patrick's Day still hasn't been paid, it was learned yesterday.

A Northern Ireland community arts project, Beat Initiative, brought 240 children to Greenwich.

But the company running the London landmark owes them pounds 16,000, according to charity director David Boyd.

"This is an awful lot of money especially for a small concern like ours," he said yesterday.

"And at the moment we are having to rob Peter to pay Paul to keep going."

Other organisations based in Northern Ireland are owed a further pounds 60,000, it is understood.

A spokesman for the New Millennium Experience said the money was being kept in a special "ring-fenced" account and it would be paid out.
