City Hall will light for tots af­ter U-turn

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY JILLY BEAT­TIE

BELFAST City Hall will be lit up on Sun­day as a touch­ing trib­ute to baby loss – af­ter a change of heart by the coun­cil.

Griev­ing mum Laura Kelly said her re­quests for pink and blue light­ing to hon­our tragic tots had been de­clined.

But staff at Belfast City Coun­cil con­firmed a U-turn given strong pub­lic feel­ing over the is­sue.

A spokesman said: “The City Hall will be lit from dusk to mid­night on Oc­to­ber 15 as part of Baby Loss Aware­ness Week.”

The 30-year-old was orig­i­nally told it did not meet coun­cil cri­te­ria.

Ms Kelly, from North Belfast, wanted to hon­our pre­ma­ture son Cor­mac who died in May af­ter a seven-day fight for life.
