The mayor of Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Tuesday joined local officials for the dedication of the clock welcoming visitors to the Irish American Heritage Museum in downtown Albany.

Lord Mayor of Belfast Mairtin O Muilleoir (mar-SHEEN’ oh muhl-YEHR’) is joining Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, other elected officials and tourism leaders for Tuesday afternoon’s dedication ceremony. He met Governor Andrew Cuomo at the Capitol prior to the event.

Schenectady-based Price Chopper supermarkets donated a kelly-green street clock that now stands outside the museum. The 12-foot-high clock is topped by a sign with “Failte” (FAWL’-shah), the Gaelic word for “welcome,” on one side and the English version on the other.
