ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — With St. Patrick's Day less than a week away, the mayor of Belfast, Northern Ireland will be joining local officials for the dedication of the clock welcoming visitors to the Irish American Heritage Museum in downtown Albany.

Museum officials say 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.

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 sign with "Failte" (FAWL'-shah), the Gaelic word for welcome, on one side and the English version on the other.

The grand marshalls of Albany's 64th annual St. Patrick's Day parade on Saturday will be introduced at the event.
