The Sinn Fein Lord Mayor of Belfast will visit graves of Ulstermen who died in the First World War.

Mairtin O Muilleoir confirmed to the News Letter yesterday that he plans to travel to see the graves and the Battle of the Somme site with former Ulster Unionist councillor Ian Adamson.

Several years ago, Belfast Sinn Fein councillor Tom Hartley travelled to visit the battle site alongside former PUP leader David Ervine, but not in an official capacity.
