Martin Lynch presented with a Belfast Ambassador Award

The work of acclaimed Playwright, Martin Lynch was honoured at a special celebration event last week hosted by the John Hewitt Bar who unveiled a plaque in recognition of his achievements. Martin Lynch, best known for his plays The History of the Troubles (accordin to my da), Dancing Shoes – The George Best Story, The Titanic Boys and The Chronicles of Long Kesh was overwhelmed and deeply honoured to be presented with a Belfast Ambassador Award from Belfast’s Lord Mayor Councillor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir:

It was a fabulous night and a great shock – I had absolutely no idea. It was particularly gratifying to see so many people there who have made me what I am, contributed, collaborated, argued, imbibed, loved, laughed and gave their talents to everything I have been involved in. Thank you so much.

Martin Lynch is one of the founding members of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, and Community Arts Forum and is a relentless activist for the development of community arts. Martin is a member of the Community Arts Partnership Trustee Board and the CAP team would like to extend our congratulations to him.
