Dance Information

Belfast (from Irish: Béal Feirste, meaning "rivermouth of the sandbanks") is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, and the second largest on the island of Ireland.

By the early 1800s the former town was home to a major port. On the River Lagan, Belfast played a key role in the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, becoming the biggest linen producer in the world.
