Down by Avalon: Reflections on East Belfast

Down by Avalon: Reflections on East Belfast, a new book by Philip Orr was launched last week and describes an east Belfast that has contributed immensely to the cultural, industrial, social and political heritage of Belfast. 

We commissioned Philip Orr initially to write a paper exploring the rich and diverse heritage of east Belfast and to set the context within which we at EastSide Tourism, and others locally, are telling the stories of the east. Philip’s paper was such a fascinating read that we thought it should be made available to others in the form of a book and we were able to do so with support from the Urban Villages Initiative.

It is now available to purchase from EastSide Visitor Centre priced £4.99.
