    I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I did laugh.

    I can however imagine how gutting it must have been at the time though!

    Shakill AND Falls Road? You’re a braver person than me. I used to have nightmares about Falls Road. Probably because my then boyfriend locked the car doors when we were driving through to visit my friend in hospital and when I asked why, explained that he “didn’t want us to be the next victims.”

    And when I worked in Musgrave C&C, a man from the Shankill cornered me and threatened me in there. So I don’t like it there either. Despite having never been.

    Aye it was terrifying alright but it deserved me right.

    Both aren’t especially nice places and it helped that I was running downhill through both areas! I was ready to pull a silky 8 minute mile on anyone who followed after me!

    As if that’d help!
