    In the west of Belfast, in the Irish district of Clonard, the "wall of peace" separates Bombay street from the British district of Shankill. The rear of the houses have recently been screened to protect against possible explosive jets. In 1969, this street was completely burned by a crowd of Protestant Loyalists. In this northern Irish city, Brexit only revives the old wounds of the two communities, British and Irish, which continue to count their deaths in their respective neighbourhoods.
