Description

Towards the end of 1971, the then Home Secretary for Northern Ireland, Reginald Maudling, said that he could foresee a time when IRA violence could be reduced to "an acceptable level". People weren't quite sure what he meant. How could any level of violence ever be "acceptable"? Towards the end of 1971, the then Home Secretary for Northern Ireland, Reginald Maudling, said that he could foresee a time when IRA violence could be reduced to "an acceptable level". People weren't quite sure what he meant. How could any level of violence ever be "acceptable"? On Saturday, 4 March 1972, a no-warning bomb went off in a crowded restaurant in central Belfast. Two women were killed. 130 people were injured. Their names were added to the growing list of victims of the "troubles." The real victims were the people left behind. This is their story. It's a story of survivors, of people who lived through the darkest years in Northern Ireland's history. In the telling of it, perhaps it will shed some light on how, as a nation, such people arrived at the point where an acceptable level of violence became for them, a way of life.
