Lyttle says Titanic website will hopefully boost tourism

East Belfast Alliance MLA Chris Lyttle has welcomed the creation of a website about the Titanic saying he hopes it will boost tourism in the area. The website has been unveiled in New York and will profile Northern Ireland and our shipbuilding heritage.

Chris Lyttle MLA said: “This is a very welcome development and I am pleased that the website highlights Northern Ireland ‘s connections with the Titanic.

“This website has the potential to boost tourism here in relation to the Titanic story and it will provide a useful resource.

“We need to capitalise on the potential that the Titanic story holds in relation to tourism and coming on the same week that the SS Nomadic took a step closer to gaining Heritage Lottery funding, the creation of this website is great news.”
