Editor's Viewpoint: City's app tribute

Sometimes we don't fully appreciate the treasures that lie within our own land.

The launching of the Literary Belfast initiative is a case in point. It focuses attention on our rich heritage of writing which has been neglected for too long and shows that this small province has produced some of the English language's greatest writers.

Now they are being given a proper showcase and the novel iPhone app which will give users a video tour of the city from renowned writers is a simple, but effective, way to spread the message. Well done to Belfast City Council for driving this initiative and bringing our literary giants on board
