Gerry Cleary, PhD

A one-day walking tour on Saturday 21 October, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm

 West Belfast evolved in the 19th Century from farmland and country estates to a townscape of industrial sites and associated mixed income housing interspersed with relics of its middle income past.  Who were the builders (architects, constructions firms and developers) who created this?  We travel along Divis Street and the Falls Road to Andersonstown visiting examples of their work. Meet at the Queen’s Street Falls Road bus route start. Lunch opportunity available.  Please note lunch is not included in the cost of the course.)
