The founders of one of the best-known walking tours of the Troubles are responding to the Covid-19 pandemic by running a virtual experience that is already attracting visitors from around the world.

DC Tours is also ramping up marketing of its online tour to colleges, schools and study groups - as current lockdown and travel ban has temporarily shuttered its in-person business.

The company is not only targeting those interested in modern Irish history, but also psychology, English language and political geography, among others, said Mark Wylie, who co-founded the company seven years ago.
