Download or read Early Belfast PDF, written by Raymond Gillespie and published by Ulster Historical Foundation. This book was released on 2007 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "For most people, nineteenth-century Belfast is the very essence of an industrial city, boasting as it did by 1900 the world's largest spinning mill, the most productive shipyard, the biggest ropeworks and tobacco factory. This book looks beyond that world to reveal an earlier Belfast where the foundations for its later industrial prowess were laid. It charts the town's remarkable growth from site to city, from the first mentions of it as long ago as the seventh century through to the 13th-century Anglo-Norman settlement and Gaelic revival, to the Plantation town of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It re-traces not only the development of the early streets, and their names, but also the lives of those who walked and lived in them. In doing so it recreates something of the thriving commercial settlement and port that came increasingly to dominate the life of the region it served - Ulster - in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries." "Using a unique series of maps, together with archaeological and documentary evidence that has been expertly pieced together, the book revolutionises our understanding of this, the most Ulster of towns, before the coming of industrialisation. Just as importantly, it reminds us that Belfast has always stood, in the poet Derek Mahon's lyrical phrase, a 'hill at the top of every street'."--BOOK JACKET.

Download or read Belfast A Novel of the Troubles PDF, written by Douglas Clark and published by . This book was released on 2004-08 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Republic of Ireland came into being in 1921, at the end of a bloody insurrection against the British. However, the treaty left the northern six counties under British sovereignty. Since that time, the Protestant majority has dominated the poorer Catholic populace with support from the British Army. In 1972, British troops fired on demonstrators, launching more than twenty-five years of sectarian violence and terror from both sides. Mason Devereux, an American freelance photojournalist, is drawn into doing a project on the violence while visiting Northern Ireland. Devereux makes contact with the Irish Republican Army. The I.R.A. is interested in publicity showing Protestant paramilitaries' violence against Catholics. A deal is struck and Devereux is given access to extraordinary photo opportunities. Devereux accepts the I.R.A.'s assistance, but finds his own way to get incriminating photographs of the I.R.A's own violence. On the verge of a negotiated end of the violence with the British government, a renegade faction of the Irish Republican Army, lead by seventies legendary gunman Michael Flynn, derails that movement toward peace. Flynn and Devereux cross paths in a sequence of violent events that continues the tragedy of Northern Ireland's Troubles.

Download or read Tracing Your Belfast Ancestors PDF, written by Chris Paton and published by Pen and Sword Family History. This book was released on 2023-06-30 with total page 234 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Straddling parts of Counties Antrim and Down, the city of Belfast has seen its fair share of history across the centuries. From its humble beginnings as a ford based settlement between two tributaries of the River Lagan, it grew following its grant of a charter in 1613 to become a corporation town, and expanded dramatically when later made a city in 1888. Along the way it has experienced the darkest of times, including the Belfast Blitz and the recent Troubles, to some of the most enlightened developments across Ireland and the UK. In Tracing Your Belfast Ancestors, genealogist and best-selling author Chris Paton returns home to provide a research gateway for those wishing to trace their ancestors from the Northern Irish capital. With a concise summary of the city's history, a tour of some of the city's most amazing archives, libraries and museums, and a detailed overview of the records generated by those who came before, he expertly steers the reader towards centuries of ancestral exploration, both through online resources and within the city of Belfast itself and with a wee bit of craic along the way!

Download or read Belfast and Derry in Revolt PDF, written by Simon Prince and published by Merrion Press. This book was released on 2019-09-16 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the late 1960s and early 1970s, a civil war started in Northern Ireland. This book tells that story through Belfast and Derry, using original archival research to trace how multiple and overlapping conflicts unfolded on their streets. The Troubles grew out of a political process that mobilised opponents and defenders of the Stormont regime, and which also dragged London and Dublin into the crisis. Drawing upon government papers, police reports, army files, intelligence summaries, evidence to inquiries and parish chronicles, this book sheds fresh light on key events such as the 5 October 1968 march, the Battle of the Bogside, the Belfast riots of August 1969, the ‘Battle of St Matthew’s’ (June 1970) and the Falls Road curfew (July 1970). Prince and Warner offer us two richly-detailed, engaging narratives that intertwine to present a new history of the start of the Troubles in Belfast and Derry – one that also establishes a foundation for comparison with similar developments elsewhere in the world.
