Well loved Belfast journalist Alf McCreary recently launched his latest book, ‘Behind the Headlines’ at the Belfast Harbour Office.
The event was attended by family, friends and colleagues and Alf gave a moving speech about his time as a journalist.
Lord Mayor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir was in attendance and paid tribute to Alf’s impartiality and storytelling ability.
The book is a highly personal account of his life, from his birth and family ties
in Bessbrook during the 1940s, through his long, distinguished and sometimes turbulent career in the Northern Ireland media, to the present day.
Forthright, humorous but also often harrowing, Alf reflects on his own life experience and how it has shaped him.
