Another of our short stops. We were lucky to see a number of important sights, but we really only barely scratched the surface. The most striking thing comparing Belfast to Dublin is how much more modern and highly developed much of it is. Here in Northern Ireland the lasting effects of the famine on the Republic of Ireland are most clearly visible. Additionally, the sectarian forces that had been at work for centuries played and continue to play a role in the still evolving modern Ireland and N. Ireland.
