On 25th July, Nigel Henderson from the History Hub Ulster presented on people from East Belfast who served in WWI as part of our Heritage Lottery Fund project ‘Remembering Ordinary Women in WWI’.

One participant commented:

“I found it very interesting when I really didn't think I would…When you think you know a bit about your history and background and the community you come from and you really don't… Until you go to an evening like we did last night.”

Women from the following groups attended: Short Strand Women’s Group, the Diamond Project and East Belfast Independent Women's Group.

Exhibition and book launch at Brownlow House
