Sinead Morrissey is Belfast's first Poet Laureate. BBC News reports that she was appointed by Lord Mayor of Belfast, Mairtin O'Muilleoir. She will participate in public events and community outreach programs. She will produce a series of poems about Belfast.

Dr. Morrissey said in a statement, "Belfast is a city with an extraordinary literary tradition, especially in relation to poetry. I am therefore hugely honoured to be appointed Belfast's first Poet Laureate, and I am excited to celebrate and explore further both the city and poetry in the year ahead."

Dr. Morrissey has written five poetry collections. Her latest collection, Parallax, arrives in October.
