Opportunities for legacies to be bequeathed to Derry by the City of Culture and Fleadh Cheoil na h-Éireann topped the agenda at high level discussions Sinn Féin's Martina Anderson MEP held with top Arts Council NI officials when she met Chief Executive, Roisín McDonough and Director of Strategic Development, Nick Livingston at their MacNeice House headquaters in Belfast recently.

Commenting on a very positive meeting, Ms Anderson said: "I am confident that the Arts Council under Roisin McDonough's leadership, will play an important role in helping maximise all the opportunities City of Culture will present for all our arts and cultural organisations, especially those working in our most socially disadvantaged areas."Our discussions also focused on opportunities for all to engage with Culture Connects, a programme of events being currently rolled out as part of the Irish Presidency of the European Union.
