On 13 March 2017, Dr. Cheryl Lawther was invited to participate in a Belfast City Centre walking tour with local company Dead Centre Tours.


This educational tour began at Belfast City Hall, crossing the city through the Cathedral Quarter and finishing up by the Waterfront Hall. Over the course of the walk, participants learnt about different atrocities that had taken place in Belfast City Centre and some the personal stories that accompanied these acts of violence. A number of less well-known events were highlighted and through the telling of a range of different atrocities, the complexity of the conflict was highlighted. Of particular interest was the tour guides use of an iPad which allowed participants to see different images of Belfast throughout different stages of the conflict and its effect on the city centre.
