Lord Mayor of Belfast Máirtín Ó Muileoir showed he is a man of many colours…or at least his hair is…when he launched the Belfast Children’s Festival (March 7th-14th) in the city centre this morning along with the Chair of the Arts Council Bob Collins. Hairdressing meets art by Sienta La Cabeza, a Catalan group from Barcelona.
The Lord Mayor even gave an interview to Marie-Louise Muir of BBC Radio Ulster’s Arts Extra programme while his hair was being reconfigured!
The Lord Mayor attended a number of other engagements throughout the day but was perhaps lucky that he did not have to chair a Council meeting! How long we have to wait until he reverts to his traditional look remains to be seen! Here’s a reminder of how things looked in the Lord Mayor’s parlour yesterday (Tuesday) when I was among a group of Lions Clubs representatives to be welcomed by him at City Hall.
