Protestant (Unionist) area of Belfast with deep ties to the Orange order. The Orange Order headquarters are nearby. The murals show their connection to the protestant movement.

The quality of murals is as good as on the Shankhill. George best's place of birth isn't far away. Interesting memorials to the shipyard workers who lived in this locality very handy for the nearby yards.

The mural is a must see. Home to a big brick works and a famous tobacco factory. Large holiday inn hotel next to city centre and a top line shoe shop. Alex hurricane Higgins from here
