St Anne’s Cathedral’s collection of books containing the names of all known to have died in World War One is to feature in an exhibition opening in Belfast City Hall this week.

Belfast Visual Artist Lise McGreevy has compiled a unique collection of WW1 art and artefacts never seen before in one location and will display these as part of the centenary celebrations.
