We do not want to go back to ‘that’ time but we learn to face it and recognise it as part of the history of Northern Ireland – and 1972 is certainly that. Described as the bloodiest year of the Troubles, our Weekend magazine content publishes some of the most compelling photography illustrating that violent year, some well known and others from our archives.

Author and Belfast Telegraph columnist Malachi O’Doherty writes about 1972, and life as a young journalist in the city.

For those looking to brighten their weekend with a new recipe, Donal Skehan and Paula McIntyre have a selection of delicious dishes, whether you’re looking to put the zest back into baking or craving a midweek meal made in minutes.

Speaking of hearty fare, food writer John Mulgrew shares his recipe for an extra special ragu.

Reviewer Joris Minne gives his opinion on Il Pirata in Ballyhackamore, while drinks writer Gary Law assesses the reality of minimum alcohol pricing.

We’ve also got gardening advice from Diarmuid Gavin, book reviews and health news – plus, we’re seeing stars in terms of interiors.

No Weekend is complete with a healthy dose of TV, and telly lover Billy Weir is here with his view on a certain celebrity skating show.
