Story of change for Maiden city

Londonderry's ‘Story of Change’ is to be told in Holland and North America with the aim of fostering new business, tourist and cultural and diaspora links.

A delegation from Derry City Council will fly the flag of the city ahead of a year of world-class events taking place during its time as City of Culture 2013.

Town Clerk Sharon O’Connor revealed details of the mission during a recent trip to Stormont when she said the roadshow to the USA, Canada and Holland were part of a “global invite to come home for two great years of celebrations and change”.

Mayor, Alderman Maurice Devenney said: “It’s the start of a significant countdown to 2013 and the partnership and support to make the city a successful destination for business and tourism is better than ever.”
