Outside St. Anne’s Cathedral, Donegall Street
30th March: 2.00pm – 4.00pm
Belfast has a long history of people working for peace, justice and inclusion. This walk will take in the city centre and Ormeau Road, and cover peace and justice issues, including aspects of responses to the Troubles but also opposition to slavery in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
Important cultural and technological references will be thrown in, and participants are welcome to share their own stories as the walk wends its way. The idea is not just to learn about work for peace and justice in the past but to be inspired for the future. This walk is part of INNATE’s work on developing peace trails around Ireland.
Starts outside the entrance to St Anne’s Cathedral, Donegall Street and finishes at Park Road junction (Cooke Centenary Church) on the Ormeau Road. Note that the walk is about 5km/3 miles and participants will have to make their own way onward from the finish point (there are buses to the city centre across the Ormeau Road). Participants are advised to dress appropriately for the weather on the day.
No lower or upper age limits. Limited places. Our guide will be Rob Fairmichael, INNATE.
