Obama & the Literific

Thanks to our relationship with the US Consulate Belfast and thanks to Professor Tony Gallagher, several members of the Literific had the unique opportunity to attend US President Barack Obama’s address to young people at the Waterfront Hall prior to his journey to Lough Erne for the G8 meeting.

It was a wonderful opportunity to hear President Obama’s thoughts on a shared future in Northern Ireland and an honour for our members to see the President’s rhetorical style up close and personal (some of us even from the second row!).

The council is appreciative for our ongoing relationship with the US Consulate in Belfast and looks forward to future events we can collaborate on!
