Some barbed wire along a building in West Belfast, Northern Ireland

I saw a lot of wire like this around certain buildings in this region of Belfast. There has been a lot of problems in this city (and Northern Irleand) especially over the past 43 years. I am glad I got to see the murals in the area. I did not go on a guided tour (which would have helped answer a lot of questions I was asking myself) but I did have some prior knowledge of the situation in the region. As recent as last week there was some isolated rioting in Belfast (for the Twelfth of July Celebration).
