Bring battle painting 'into view'





A painting of King William of Orange heading to the Battle of the Boyne should hang in public, a nationalist assembly member has said.
The artwork has been largely hidden from public view since being bought by the Stormont Government in 1933 for £209 and four shillings.

The plea for a wider platform came after it was found hanging in the Speaker's office last month.

The SDLP's John Dallat said a prominent place in Stormont should be found.

He said it would "intrigue visitors and certainly put another slant on our previous beleaguered history".
