Mum's the word for Belfast City's new Lord Mayor
The first mother to wear the Lord Mayor's chain in Belfast takes up her new position this week.
Alliance's Nuala McAllister is preparing to take on the role as the city's first citizen, becoming only the fourth woman and first mum to hold the position.
Alliance group leader Michael Long said: "I hope everyone will enjoy watching her year unfold, with her partner Sam and the new first baby of Belfast, Finn, by her side."
Ms McAllister will be replacing DUP Lord Mayor Brian Kingston.
This week also marks the 20th anniversary of the Alliance Party holding the balance of power in City Hall.
