Nigel’s Life in Northern Ireland

Having lived in Northern Ireland all my life and grown up through what became known around the world as ‘The Troubles’, I am still getting used to seeing Belfast, the city where I grew up and went to school and worked, as a tourist destination with visitors literally from all over the world. In 2014 over 60 cruise ships visited Belfast and the province has also hosted major events in recent years such as a G8 conference, MTV European Music Awards and the World Police & Fire Games. This is certainly something, which was never seen during my early life as literally nobody would have considered visiting Northern Ireland and especially Belfast for a holiday, concert or sporting event.
