2 March, 2011

Sinn Féin Councillor and Chair of Belfast City Council’s Development committee Conor Maskey has welcomed the news that the MTV European Music Awards are to be held in Ireland’s second city this November.

Speaking from the announcement which was held in the Waterfront Hall Cllr Maskey said;

“This is wonderful news for our city and has already created a massive buzz amongst citizens and the business community.

The potential here is massive; world music stars will be descending on our city and the economic benefits are apparent. I have no doubt the people of Belfast will welcome this announcement and enjoy what will be a memorable and enjoyable night for all of us.

This is only the second time an event like this has been held in Ireland and I am delighted that those of us involved in the bid to bring the awards have been so successful and praised by MTV in a such a way.” CRÍOCH
