James Cunningham, musical genius & just the second visually impaired student ever to attend Queens University with his guide dog (adorable pup Bart) has sat down to our ‘My Belfast’ challenge.

The pair caused quite the stir at Portadown College when James got Bart just last year, when they quickly became bona-fide celebrities in the local town.

But now, having moved to Belfast just weeks ago it seems James (and Bart) have got to grips with all that Belfast has to offer (particularly the restaurants and night-life!) and are clearly enjoying their new ‘home away from home’…


Home is…

Where I get my washing done.

Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you.

Nothing… that I want her seeing in a magazine 😉

What would you do if you had the keys to the city for the day?

I’d go have a go on that huge organ in St Anne’s Cathedral followed by a wee cheeky Nandos.

What’s the most interesting discovery you’ve made in Belfast?

40% off vouchers for Dominos, although I’ve none left 🙁

Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?

Limelight, I reckon I could keep myself occupied.

Celebrity crush?

Ed Sheeran and that voice, but shhh

Describe you’re perfect day in the city.

Just general banter with my friends. Also, Boojums <3


First Belfast memory?

Walking along, admiring the big cranes… followed by a collision with a lamp post.

What movie most closely resembles your life story and why?

Frozen, need I explain?

Sum up Belfast in three words?

Banter, friends, taxis.
