I welcomed Belfast Lord Mayor Councillor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir to Bangor Abbey on Monday 28 October 2013 to explore our Shared Christian Heritage. Canon Ronnie Nesbitt joined us guiding Máirtín and I around the Abbey, outlining the history and plans to commemorate in the future.
I was delighted to welcome Máirtín Ó Muilleoir to Bangor. As the 1,400 Anniversary of the death of St Columbanus nears it was great to outline history of Bangor from a Christian Heritage perspective and explore opportunities to work with Belfast to further promote and utilise opportunities for reconciliation.
Councillor Ó Muilleoir stated “Envious of Bangor's history and heritage, leaving Belfast in the shade. St Columbanus, St Gall & St Comgall Pilgrim troika to be proud of."
