    ... the night before. All of the ruins had been tidied up and swept away. The two most famous a parts of Belfast are the Shankill and Falls areas. These are two large housing estates in the heart of Belfast city one housing estate for Catholics and the other for Protestants.

    ... alive. The Peace wall was a bit of an eye-opener; several lengths of wall up to 7m high and up to 5km long (21 km in total for all sections, some built within a couple of metres of houses. We were told that it costs much more for civic amenities in Belfast than in most other cities because they have to have two of everything such as leisure centres, libraries etc because the two religions won’t mix.
