This is the Catholic counterpart of Shankill Road, filled with political murals about 'heroes' of the Republican side, legends like Nelson Mandela or current political developments. Whereas this area felt less disturbing than Shankill Road for me personally, it shows how deep the division goes...More

Like Shankill Road, Falls Road is an area with a lot of history. This is a Catholic neighborhood with murals and messages from the Catholic perspective. Unlike the Shankill Road area, where flags were flying everywhere only a few were displayed and one was from...More
