Writer's Square, Belfast

This open space facing the Cathedral is a centre for the arts and a venue for street performers and arts festival events. Round the square you can find quotations about Belfast by famous writers such as this by Michael McLaverty:

On his way back to the college he wandered about the city learning the names of
the streets: Oxford Street, Victoria Street, Cromac Street, Durham Street,
Townshend Street, Carlisle Circus and he thought of the island names -
Lagavristeevore, Killaney, Crocnacreeva, Carnasheeran, Crecaharna - words full
of music, and he said them out aloud to himself as he went along.
