The lesser-known Belfast troubles of 1920-1922 was a particularly vicious and sectarian black mark on the history of this city and of the island as a whole. Just under 500 people were killed in just over two years of inter-communal violence.

Historian Dr Alan Parkinson (author of Belfast’s Unholy War: The Troubles of the 1920s) has described it as a ‘forgotten conflict’, a period in time not only neglected by historians but buried by the trauma which emanated from what occurred.
