Adam ReynoldsI wish she would have dug into the history of Belfast ,it's been a long time and work for this little seaside town to be what it is today ,its great ,a far cry from the poor dirty place I grew up in ,in my 43 years . today's great little city could be greatly appreciated when contrasting it against history
