Irish Tour - September, 2006 - Part Two

Support the Raytheon Nine!

But I digress... Kieran Gallagher, one of the Raytheon Nine, took me and Amy on a tour of the Bogside.

This sign welcomes you into the Catholic Bogside neighborhod.

This mural depicts Mariead Farrell "on the blanket" at the women's prison in Armagh.

Ardoyne is a famous Belfast neighborhood where Catholic children ran a gauntlet every morning to get to elementary school. They were pelted with rocks and bottles, bags of urine, tear gas and more.

This is the Giants' Causeway....

See the rope bridge suspended above the sea?

and this is our possibly long-lost cousin Colleen Feeney of Malin Head.
