We were on a bus as we drove through looking at the murals. Wish we could have spent more time and had a local explain some of the murals as we did in Derry. It is amazing how recent this history is.

These are all over the place in Belfast. The tour can be very informational and interesting. The history of Northern Ireland is painful and the murals call that out
