Meet Morgan:

IMBV-Morgan MacIntyre WebHome is…
A few places at the moment but probably always Donegal, where I lived as a child.

Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you?
When I was a kid I had an unusual obsession with televised wrestling.
I would switch it on anytime she left the room and click it back to cartoons if I heard her coming.

What would you do if you had the keys to the city for the day?
I’d give the city over to Belfast’s Carnival group (Beat Carnival) and watch the colour and street parties unfold.

What’s the most interesting discovery you’ve made in Belfast?
No Alibis Book Store (and music venue) in Botanic.
It caters to those with eclectic literary and music tastes

Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?
The Linen Hall Library. I spent a lot of time there while writing my dissertation.
It’s beautiful and comforting.

Celebrity crush?
At the moment, Charlotte Church.

Describe your perfect day in the city?
Breakfast in George’s Market with a visit to the vintage coat and hat seller in the corner and everywhere else in between.
On to a lunch time gig at the Black Box and later fish and chips with a mug of tea at Long’s followed by a film at the QFT.

What’s the last major event you attended in Belfast?
An LGBT Rights Rally at the City Hall.

Favourite bar or club:
Kelly’s Cellars, particularly for a Christmas Eve hot port or the John Hewitt all year.
Best place in Belfast to spend a fiver:
A fiver gets you a tasty falafel plate in Falafel on Botanic.

The Ormeau Park and an ice cream after with my Grandad.

Lost in Translation- I’m always waiting for something to happen.
