They met President Michael Higgins and enjoyed strolling around the garden to the Peace Bell and the flower gardens and the house. The group then headed to Beechlawn Hotel, Dunmurry where they stayed for 2 nights. Monday was a busy day as they headed to City Hall in Belfast where the Lord Mayor, Ryan Murphy greeted them. After refreshments they headed straight to Stormont for a meet and greet with Naomi Long, Leader of the Alliance Party.
