  • I must say I was greatly impressed by this suggestive place. Hundreds of murals inspired by the Troubles. A wall still divides the two communities, a sign that the issue has not been definitively resolved, even if peace reigns at the moment. Definitely a place to visit if you are in Belfast.

  • Visited as part of a tour group with a local guide. Having also seen the Falls Road & Crumlin Road , this is part of history too, interesting but history you hope will never be repeated.  more »
