Never Again

In August, 1969, families, mostly Catholic, were driven out and their homes burned in Bombay Street (and surrounding streets), between the Falls and Shankill. RTÉ news report CultureNI on a Red Barn Gallery exhibition of photographs. The defenselessness of the community then is reflected in the urging for “No decommission” in the present. Fian Gerard McAuley (aged 15) was shot in nearby Waterville Street.

Bombay Street, Belfast.
