Glenn Patterson at Belfast City Hall

Literary Belfast iPhone App

The Literary Belfast iPhone app will take you on a  journey through the literary city and Belfast's history, taking you from the splendour of City Hall and the lives commemorated in Writer's Square to the back alleys and quiet suburban streets where our finest writers lived, walked and worked, and continue to live, walk and work.

Updated: 08/06/2011

There are few better ways to get to know a city than through its writers, whether they are locals who appreciate every nuance of the complex city, or visiting scribes, writing of how Belfast assaults the senses of those who meet it for the first time.

Your video guides for the app's exclusive Belfast Through Writers' Eyes walking tour are Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon, Marie Jones, Patricia Craig, Glenn Patterson, Martin Lynch, David Park, Frank Ormsby, Sinead Morrissey, Leontia Flynn, Owen McCafferty, Bernard MacLaverty and Ciaran Carson.

Journey with them as they take you to their favourite locations in Belfast, share their stories and read from their work.
