Major walk planned in Belfast to mark 100 years since votes for women
A STAR of Derry Girls, a comedian, and the Lord Mayor of Belfast have all backed a major artwork to mark the 100th anniversary of votes for women.
Saoirse-Monica Jackson, best known for her role as Erin in Derry Girls, comedian Gráinne Maguire and Belfast mayor Nuala McAllister have pledged their support for Processions, a landmark art project due to take place on Sunday June 10.
Thousands of women wearing the suffragettes' colour scheme of purple, white and green will walk in a choreographed procession through Belfast in recognition of the fight for equality.
To take part in the walk, women can register via processions.co.uk.
