City Hall artwork commissionA new stained glass window which reflects Celtic myths and legends will be installed in City Hall at the end of February and unveiled in March.
The artwork is being put in place as part of our aim to reflect the cultural views of all those living in Belfast and to show that the building is a 'City Hall for All'.
The window, designed by artist Martin Donlin, will be located opposite the Conor room, on the ground floor of City Hall.
It shows the Cattle Raid of Cooley, or Táin Bó Cúailnge, one of the most famous tales in Celtic mythology.
In the story, Queen Medbh of Connacht sends her army north to Ulster to capture a great brown bull.
They are no match for the great warrior Cuchulain however and Medbh's army is defeated, but not before they manage to seize the bull.
We're spending £5,500 on the artwork, with the rest of the budget being met by the Office of First Minister and Deputy First Minister's Community Relations Unit. For more information, call our Good Relations Unit on 028 9027 0465.
