THE FACE OF NORTHERN IRELAND
CASTLES OF THE NORTH
by Jonathan Olley,
Journalists, photographers and camera crews have followed the conflict between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland closely for many years, but attention has rarely been given to the consequences the conflict had for the urban environment. Photographer Jonathan Olley photographed the British army s heavily-armed observation posts and forts which define the street scene in Northern Ireland. They loom over shops, pubs and fish and chip shops like modern castles. Now that the army is withdrawing as a part of the peace process, the buildings and towers are being demolished brick by brick.

the province's Protestants and Catholic factions. The images in this
