Under the banner “Culturally Curious” as identified by Belfast City Council.

Cultural, heritage and environmental links between Scotland, Ireland and Spain. We are looking at “telling the story” as advised by Stephen Bradley of Bout Yeh… what a man.  Ace photographer and social media expert. He even managed to make me look glamorous!  He said, as did other people, that just because I know what I am talking about, it doesn’t mean everyone else does.  How true! This web site is therefore becoming  an on line magazine to tell the story.  Thanks Stephen.
