Mayoral Visit Builds On Belfast Dublin Links

Belfast Lord Mayor Nichola Mallon has welcomed her Dublin counterpart to City Hall as part of an ongoing drive to build on the relationship between the two cities.

Dublin Lord Mayor Christy Burke joined Mayor Mallon at charitable and social enterprise projects across Belfast before a civic reception in City Hall.

Nichola Mallon said: "I think it's very important to build on the strong link we have with the city of Dublin, particularly after the success of the Belfast to Dublin economic corridor project earlier this year.

"Christy shares my drive to remember our society's forgotten citizens and to acknowledge the great work of our unsung heroes. The places we visited and the people we met today are great examples of Belfast's unsung heroes acting selflessly for the benefit of others."

Dublin Lord Mayor Christy Burke said: "The relationship between Belfast and Dublin continues to grow and I look forward to sharing the experiences of today with my colleagues back in Dublin."
