Asked to write about something that defined a city we knew it came to me that Belfast was known for it's religious divide and its renowned hospitality - a strange contradiction that such friendly people should pose such a threat to each other and that so many years of misery could be caused by faith in a loving god...  It brought back memories - from my youth - 3 specific ones oddly enough - a shamrock of memories - a triptich and so I wrote them down more or less without embellishment and the became The Belfast Triptich now at The Linnet's Wings and very beautifully presented.
