Aye Write 2019: Brian Allaway

  • Mitchell Library Glasgow G3 7DN (map)

Belfast firefighters responded to every incident during the Troubles, wherever it was located, seeing the best and worst of humanity. The years 1969 to 1994 were particularly difficult for Northern Ireland, and they would test the firefighters to their limits. 

Firefighters of Belfast provides a record of that time from a firefighter’s perspective, combining research, contemporary records and first-hand accounts from people who lived through it. 

Brian Allaway’s narrative places on record the dedicated service and invaluable contribution made by firefighters to the people of Belfast when the city needed them most.
