did you get 16 down & 31 Across in the Irish Times Christmas Crosaire?

"One knows they're there but Antrim is not one of them"(5)
?NTR?

Also can someone explain why the answer to 31 across is Wait? (I thought it might be Waft?)

"More than one such may come to your door with 30across and hang around there" (4) (30 across is carol)
?A?T

thank you as these two clues are bugging me!

could the answer to 16 across be Antre? as this is a cavity in the nose but what is the connection to antrim?

I'm stuck on 7d; "I do have more about such old coinage." M-I-O-E

Could MOI be the first three letters and ORE be the last three?
