Belfast lord mayor visits Islamic Centre

Lord mayor Nuala McAllister has visited Belfast Islamic Centre

BELFAST lord mayor Nuala McAllister has visited the city's Islamic Centre.

It comes after similar visits to St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast’s Jewish community and a meeting with Laurence Graham, President of the Methodist Church.

The Alliance councillor said it was "part of my aim to be a lord mayor for everyone".

“Across the city we have so many cultures and traditions and while it can be easy for others to promote hate and stir up fears, I’m here to stand against that – to speak up for Belfast and promote it as the open, inclusive and welcoming city that it is."
