14 February, 2010 - by Alex Maskey

Sinn Féin MLA for south Belfast Alex Maskey has sent best wishes to the north’s Chinese community on the celebration of the Chinese New Year, the year of the Tiger.

Speaking after attending a celebration event in Belfast’s St George’s Market along with party colleague and east Belfast representative Niall Ó Donnghaile, Mr Maskey said;

“It was great to see such a colourful and entertaining family event in the heart of Belfast today, bringing together the many cultures that live in our city to celebrate a hugely important date in the Chinese community’s calendar.

I commend all those involved in organising today's event and thank them for providing such first class entertainment and education.

To all our Chinese citizens I wish them well in the year ahead; “Xin Nian Kuai Le.” CRÍOCH
