IRA memorial to be erected on peaceline

AN IRA memorial is to be built just metres from where a landmark peace sculpture will be erected later this year, the News Letter has learned.

The memorial garden dedicated to IRA members from the St James area, just off the Falls Road in west Belfast, will be within walking distance of the massive Rise sculpture due to be erected on the Broadway roundabout.

One of the main routes into the city, connecting the Westlink and M1, as well as providing access to the Royal Victoria Hospital, the roundabout is passed by thousands of drivers on a daily basis, not to mention the potential millions of tourists which visit Belfast each year.
