The site of the destruction was visited by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester soon after the attack. The area of housing on the lower Shankill around Agnes Street was known colloquially as "The Hammer", one of a number of nicknames applied to districts that included "the Nick". A stone found in in the graveyard is thought to date back to druid times, when it would have been used in cermony for sacrafices. McCullough trained in the Albert Foundry boxing club, located in the Highfield estate where he grew up. These lines are still a very real part of everyday life for communities in Northern Ireland. We were only out on the Shankill Road and the bombs started falling and the anti-aircraft guns were firing.

If you really want, why not write a message of hope and peace on one of our walls, a truly symbolic sign of human solidarity? The crowd of UVF supporters were defiant. Between and the gang was probably responsible for the murders of 15 to 20 Catholics, mostly in north Belfast. It was removed to the grounds of St Matthews in That's chalked up In Ballymurphy. Their leader was an extremely violent sadist, Hugh Leonard "Lennie" Murphy, who started the throat-cutting, which was continued by his lieutenants, Bates and William Moore, after he was imprisoned on a firearms charge.

Bates told police that while he actively took part in abducting Quinn from a north Belfast street and beating him until he stopped struggling, it was Murphy who cut Quinn's throat. In the alleyway, Murphy set about Rice and cut his throat back to the spine. This is reflected in the number of Catholic churches in the area. These include the Beehive and the Rock Bar. It was in ruins by the 17th century and had disappeared entirely by the 19th, leaving only its graveyard. The horrible detail of the murders, graphically recounted in newspapers and books, has helped keep the Shankill Butchers' reputation fresh in many people's imagination.
