Why would you feel scared, did you feel anyway scared anywhere else in Northern Ireland, the people are the same with the same problems, the Shankill is as safe as anywhere else in the Province, did you speak to anyone and get to know them, they really don't bite, I am from the Shankill, I promise, we really are really nice people
