No bhelena, I lived in Belvoir. I live in Australia now & often wondered what part of Oz Irene went to. I am in Western Australia, moved here in 1991.

I think there is a Belvoir bar. Not sure.
Sounds like you are going to have a great trip, I'm sure you are looking forward to it.
It's late here now, time for bed (with the electric blanket as it's wet, windy and cold here).

I think you told me that she must see a great change in the city I would like to go back home but we are solong out of it I dont think we would settle back as easy as I  would think our Belfast is Gone for ever but so is the Dublin we once knew its gone to hell and there is an evil there now that was never there before and the stabbings around the country is out of control I would not go into town on my own now I am not that steady on my feet I can potter around but I get tired easy we where thinking of renting for awhile in Belfast to see how we would get on before making a move it would be awful to sell up then find we did not fit in again.I did that 26 yrs ago looked at a house in the St James area then pulled out just in time lost a few pounds but it was worth it I just had to be sure and we are still here :(

The school is rebuilt, and the girls now go to what was once Trench House. A new school has been built there and the boys still in the La Salle. I lived in Slievegallion Drive, and am up in Andersonstown regularly.  :P
