Belfast Diary

  19980902mrhitkidM.jpg (19651 bytes)
President Clinton visited a province at a pivotal juncture in its history when he arrived in Northern Ireland in early September. There is a peace accord, yet the deadliest bombing in its history has just killed 28 in the town of Omagh. A new parliament has a Protestant leader and Catholic deputy, yet the two sides just ended a summer filled with recrimination and violence.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Post-Gazette photographer Martha Rial spent the weeks before the president's visit capturing the image of a place and people at the end of a season of anger. Rial's observations on her visit became the Belfast Diary entries: New Irish Eyes and Days of Rage and Hope.
