Londonderry in Irish city of culture bid

Councillors in Londonderry have backed a bid to become the Irish City of Culture in five years' time.

The motion was proposed by Sinn Féin councillor Barney O'Hagan, who said it would build on the legacy of Derry's "momentous" year as UK City of Culture.

It passed with cross-party support, after an amendment by the DUP's Maurice Devenny that politics played no part in the bid and all communities would be included.
