Today we went to and climbed Cavehill, a mountain just outside of Belfast. We were able to see incredible views of the city! Cavehill is the location of the United Irishmen’s first declaration of independence for the island of Ireland. After seeing the views of Northern Ireland off Cavehill, it is easy to understand why those men were so inspired!
Following the Cavehill climb, we visited a local Gaelic Athletic Association group. These groups are a place for Catholic Nationalists to assemble, relax, and watch traditional Irish sports, such as Gaelic football and hurling. We were warmly welcomed by some of the locals and were able to watch a Gaelic football match with some of them. It was great to mingle with some locals and learn about some of the Northern Irish culture!
