NORTHERN IRELAND has become somewhat famous for the murals painted in almost every area of the country. These pictures of murals are often flashed around the world on news bulletins or used as a backdrop when interviewing people. They often depict the history and political views of both traditions and are a way of marking territory. These Northern Ireland wall paintings often look intimidating but they have become as much of a tourist attraction as many of the regular attractions within Northern Ireland. The following are Belfast wall paintings and are both Loyalist and Republican in content.

Is This An End To The Belfast Murals
 
Paramilitary murals will be replaced under a government-funded scheme to redecorate Northern Ireland's walls with more welcoming images. 

The proposals have been criticised by some tour guides. Tourists can see a lot of Northern Ireland's history with some of the Belfat Murals they have often been described as a picture book that shows the last 35 years of conflict.

The murals in Belfast is one of the most popular, must see attraction for tourists visiting Northern Ireland. With peace and stability now almost normal in Northern Ireland Peace Line Tours would like to ask the question is it time for the murals to go, or are they just a harmless tourist attraction and a reminder of the past.
