I've read a few now and I've found them all the same

shame really because I'm interested in those kind of articles but not when they're written like that

First thing I've read on it. It is pretty bad, but I just enjoyed the memories. He particularly nailed some of the groups of people

couldn't finish the article but when did it close?

my first night out in belfast was in 1997 so I think it was before my time.

I think it closed about 2000 actually,but it was around the end of the 90s anyway. It makes reference to the local paramilitaries coming in and visiting with guns and balaclavas and all. The first night I went that happened. I thought that was just what happened in Belfast.
