Agnews a Protestant-owned Car Showroom attacked and burned 14/8/69.

The above caption is from the BT but I think that car showroom was attacked and burned on the 13th (not the 14th) as Catholics made their way back from besieging Springfield Rd police station.

I presume this is the car show room they burnt down in August 1969 by republicans in order to spread the police resources away from Londonderry during the so-called battle of the bogside?

Yip thats the one RSAUB. They attacked that on their way down from the Springfield Rd Police Station where they had a protest,attacked the car showroom then continued on down a launched an attack on Hastings St Police Station. This was all prior to the trouble which started bigtime later in the week. As Malachy O Doherty said...''they started the trouble'' He was there and witnessed it happening.

Some interesting pictures there, and a picture in itself tells a far better story than a thousand word. Certain things there, that the rebels would like to airbrush out of history... but the facts are there for those who choose to open their eyes.

Yip its there for people to see if they open their eyes. It was bad enough for republicans having the 'British army on Irish streets'but having the local Catholic community defending them just wasn't going to be allowed. They had to change that and they did. Six months later they murdered British soldier Robert Curtis said to be the first soldier killed in the 'Troubles'

Republican propaganda has it that the Falls Rd curfew turned the Catholic people against the army,but as we can see from the above photos Catholic women were defending the soldiers six weeks after the curfew.

The Boyne Bridge Sandy Row. The first picture I think depicts a riot which happened in 1835 in which a young 17 year girl Annie Moore was killed.




Belfast. September 1969. A lone policeman and civilians guard the barricade at the Boyne Bridge. (8/9/69)





Belfast. September 1969. A crowd of Protestants from Sandy Row is stopped on the Boyne Bridge as soldiers stand armed in Durham Street. (8/9/69)
