One thought on “Luminaries And Legends

    This mural was featured recently on a BBC website. However, while five of the men were named, including both of the most well known ( George Best and Van Morrison) neither of the two women were named. This seemed a real pity and a serious failure to inform a wider public of the achievements of Belfast women. I wrote and complained to the BBC but they gave a feeble reply and chose not to take the obvious step of naming them. I was not asking for equal pay/ status/billing etc but a name didn’t seem too much to ask.
