Belfast

In June 2011 I was invited to visit Northern Ireland and Belfast as a guest travel reporter. Here is a visual impression of the beautiful City of Belfast.

Belfast Political Murals a collage

Political Murals in Belfast seen during a tour of the Protestant Shankhill district & the Catholic Falls district. The murals send out a politacal message or have been put up in remberance of heros, people and children whom passed away during the conflict years “The Troubles“. Even to this day there is unrest. Thankfully in the rest of Belfast I felt in no way unsafe, and everyone was so friendly and open.

Peace Wall

The Peace wall, put up to seperate the Catholic and Protestant districts – Falls & Shankhill. Like Bill Clinton we also signed the wall for peace.
