They provided no schools, places of worship, shops, health services or recreational facilities. In Easter 1920 war came to Ballymurphy. It remains to this day. Ciaran de Baroid writes a personal and moving account of how a working class community and the Irish troubles have interacted one upon the other over two decades.
