On Saturday 9th March Carrickfergus Peace Impact Project facilitated a group of residents from the Castlemara estate to travel to the Titanic museum, West Belfast peace walls and murals on the Shankill road.
A coach was hired to take the group of 29 local residents on the trip leaving Castlemara shop at 10am before travelling on to the Titanic museum for the fantastic tour around the museum. We then moved across to the Peace walls separating the Shankill from the Falls where our guide gave the group a history talk on how and why the walls where built and needed. From here the group traveled around the greater Shankill stopping to hear the history of the many murals and memorials in remembrance of those murdered in atrocities carried out during the troubles.
The trip finished with lunch in Cuffs restaurant, Crumlin road prison.
