Untitled[edit]

It would be good to have some post-WWII stuff other than that on the Troubles. Presumably while the Troubles were happening normal city things were still going on - development, expansion into the hinterlands, patterns of industry etc. This article reinforces the idea that Irish history is nothing but Prods and Catholics killing each other. --Helenalex 06:00, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

File:Royal Avenue Belfast2.jpg to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Royal Avenue Belfast2.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on November 30, 2010. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2010-11-30. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 18:18, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Picture of the day
Royal Avenue, Belfast, 1890s

A photochrom print of Royal Avenue in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from the 1890s. In the 19th century, Belfast became Ireland's pre-eminent industrial city, and saw an influx of immigration, made up of mostly Catholics into a predominantly Protestant city. Sectarian tensions remained high throughout the years, with no major incidents having taken place since 1998's Belfast Agreement.
