Belfast Birth Of A City (DVD)

By Joe Curran (Writer & Presenter)

DVD 'Belfast, Birth of a City' travels through 8,000 years, exploring how the second largest city on the island of Ireland has developed from an ancient ford over the river Lagan.  The DVD describes Belfast’s development against the dramatic backdrop of the Plantation of Ulster, the Glorious Revolution and the United Irishmen's 1798 rebellion. The film has a wealth of fascinating details on the lives of the early townsfolk and it also sheds light on how the streets and entries in the oldest parts of the city came to be named. 

“People love to learn more about Belfast’s colourful past said Joe Curran the film's writer and presenter,  for example, he continued, there is now no trace of the original Belfast Castle which was once a defensive stronghold for Norman knights guarding an ancient, strategic ford over the river Lagan. Streets such as Castle Place and Castle Lane echo the location of the old castle but this DVD actually shows what the castle probably looked like and what happened to it.”
