First look: on assignment in northern Ireland

Hit the North has been tied up of late.

I’ve been working on a project in northern Ireland and spent much of last week in Belfast and along the Causeway Coast; more here.

It’s a supplement for the Daily Telegraph and a follow up to the piece I wrote for the Sunday paper earlier this year – read it here.

The supplement comes out on December 31 but, by way of a preview, I’ve been looking at a few key themes:

Personal stories around the Titanic Festival next April, marking the centenary of her doomed maiden voyage.

Folk legends and mythology along the Causeway Coastal route via the new project at the Giant’s Causeway for September 2012.

And interviews with people working in the arts and festivals across Belfast, including the 50th anniversary of the Belfast Festival at Queens.

Looks out for more in the weeks to come.
