In 2007, two members of Headliners Lyra McKee 17 and Ciaran McFarlene 16 made a video package for the BBC Hearts and Minds programme on the subject of Votes at 16, ahead of the 2007 Northern Ireland Assembly elections. 

We are reposting this piece as a tribute to Lyra who was killed recently in Derry/Londonderry on the 18th April 2019. She was a previous participant of Headliners in Belfast (formerly known as Children's Express) and more recently a trustee of Headliners (UK). You can read the statement from Headliners (UK) here.
