New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn visited Northern Ireland last week for a series of high-level political, business and community engagements.

The trip to Belfast included meetings with First and Deputy First Ministers Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness and community leaders in East and West Belfast. 

Speaker Quinn visited the Connswater Community Greenway as part of her trip to East Belfast. She met with Sammy Douglas, Project Champion and Wendy Langham, Project Manager and was informed of the many benefits the project will bring to the local people and the support that the project is receiving from the community.

Wendy Langham, Project Manager said “We are delighted that Speaker Quinn visited the Connswater Community Greenway project office. It is wonderful to have visitors from the United States interested in community led projects here and we hope that Speaker Quinn will return in the future to visit a completed Greenway in East Belfast”.
