History of Belfast

Belfast is the largest City and capital in Northern Ireland. 

During WWII Belfast was heavily bombed and it came as a surprise to the city as they believed they were outside of the range of the German bomber planes. In 1941 there were around 1,000 people killed and tens of thousands left homeless. 

In 1177 the Belfast Castle was built during the Norman Invasion of Ireland, and in 1611 this was rebuilt by Sir Arthur Chichester on the same spot as the original castle but made out of stone and timber. In 1708 the castle burned down, and construction started between 1862-1870 when a new castle was finished and set on the slopes of Cavehill country Park. The location of the previous castle was turned into streets and names in honor of the original Castle. 

Between 1908-1912 the famous RMS Titanic ship was built and completed in Belfast, the ship was launched and sadly sunk 5 days later. In 2012 a monument opened to mark Belfast’s maritime heritage on the site of the former shipyard quarter where the famous RMS Titanic was built.
