Smithfield Market Murals


Smithfield Market, Belfast, was firebombed during The Troubles and these murals commemorate the 'good old days' when the market was a hub of community life.
The market was rebuilt in the Eighties.



‘Memories of Smithfield’ paintings are by Angela Ginn and Lorainne Burrell, 1999; funded by Belfast City Council.
