31/3/22: In March, Glencree’s Peace IV-funded ‘Addressing the Legacy of Violence through Facilitated Dialogue’ project hosted a women’s residential focused on interface areas of Belfast. The aim was to explore the gendered aspects of past violence and challenges of engaging across communal and geographical divides. The event, which was attended by members from across Glencree’s Programmes, included meetings with representatives from the Ballymurphy Families Springfield Community House and representatives from the Shankill Community.
During the visit, Glencree CEO Naoimh McNamee, Roisin McGlone, Programme Manager of the ‘Addressing the Legacy of Violence through Facilitated Dialogue’ project and members of the local community also spoke to Jordan Moates, ITV News about the removal of the remaining ‘peacewalls’ in Northern Ireland – 100 of which still remain.
