I know it's not as exciting as your title, but it seems as though that building is in a building site and the window has been broken during construction. Sorry.

I'm sorry for you man but my description is it true! That Irish house was behind the enclosure made up by the people because are in the borderline with working-class (British) quartier of Shankill Road.. I know Belfast as my pocket. I lived there. Click over my name with the link under and you will see pics of me on the Repubblican newspaper..

Best regards from Italy,

Sorry Martelli but I think JC is closer to the truth. How can you say it was 'English' who broke the window? It is clearly a construction site. Go to just about any construction site and you will find the windows smashed. This is usually just vandalism as a result of boredom and not a political expression. I think you are trying to read too much into this.

Hi, Looks like a dramatic photo but i live around this area and i believe these were newly constructed buildings without any residents at that time. Also, people living on the shankill road are NOT english!
