I'd hoped (as well as many others) that stuff like this had been a part of our past. Apparently not.

Condolences to the families of the 2 who were killed. Those who did it need to be hung, drawn and quartered.

Liam Neeson's been up in Belfast over the last few days at the Lyric Theatre, which is about 10-15 minutes from where I live & I only found out today lol.


ETA: here's some more info. :)

The Shawshank Redemption's Tim Robbins and Bill Murray are in a movie that's currently filming here in Belfast. O.O Think I might go down soon sometime and see if I can see anything. A friend's mother went for a costume fitting recently for the same movie so I wonder if she's any info... ;)

My mum and I went down to the docks yesterday to see the SS Nomadic, the last of the infamous White Star Line ships and was the one that took passengers out to the Titanic in 1912. It was amazing to see that she's still with us and that she's 96 years old (built in 1911). I'm really glad I went because I thought that mum was joking, thinking there was no way it was her. ;) This was all part of the Belfast Maritime Festival by the way. About 30 photos in all.

Tall ships for you tall ships buffs ;) )

So, more riots in Belfast last night - helicopters flying about at all hours of the morning - no surprises there, anything else new? Nah, didn't think so. No wonder people are wary about coming over here to Northern Ireland.

Scary thing is that it was still going on when we left church this morning, several hundred yards down the road, for those of you familiar with the city itself, across from the traffic lights at Mountpottinger Road. The usual wee shits taking part in it all; the usual wee hoodies and skinheaded yobs who obviously have nothing better to do when they aren't lounging around at home scrounging money off the government and can't be arsed to go looking for a job. All they're doing is causing more chaos for the police when the police could be doing something else - though with the way the police do things (or rather not) these days, who knows? - attacking them just for stepping in and trying to do their job.....*shakes head* Okay that's mini rant over :)


and also a little something else for all those who died 4 years ago today, a sort of little rememberance thing..... )
