On the Falls Road Baths….

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir with a few moments from the history of the Falls Road Baths. It has gone through many changes and iterations in its time. He mentions his mother’s experience during the war when she glimpsed the inside when it, and other public places across Belfast, served as a mortuary for the whole city after one of the worst moments of the blitz – one thousand died in a single night alone – a decision, he says, “she has regretted ever since”.
