This area of west Belfast is one that has been in the news for decades in reports and videos detailing the long conflict which was brought to an end in 1998 with the signing of the Belfast/ Good Friday Agreement. Let me show you how this area looks today, how the history of the road is reflected in the considerable artwork which has appeared over the years and how opinions of conflict not only in Northern Ireland but other trouble spots around the world are depicted in the murals along the Peace Wall.
My name is Rory and I am a qualified tour guide and a member of Tour Guides Northern Ireland.

I love my country and hope you can all join me on one of my tours of Belfast and I will share my knowledge and passion of my homeland with you.

Belfast is clearly still a city where both sides, unionist/loyalist and nationalist are sensitive. You could feel the tension as Rory walked along the Falls Road and Peace Wall, giving an objective view of the history of the conflict through the murals. It was intriguing, enlightening and incredibly sad. I only hope that peace continues here. Thank you to Rory for handling the topic with sensitivity and diplomacy and for teaching me things I’d not been made aware of before.
