On Friday 21st November, 55 Year 12 GCSE pupils travelled back in time. Cinemagic, in conjunction with Ballyclare Secondary’s Media Department, hosted a Q&A with RTE director Sonia Nic Giolla Easbuig, famous for her series entitled Northern Voices. This project documents the issues faced by ordinary people on all sides of the sectarian divide during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. The morning saw the pupils discussing what it is like to live in Northern Ireland in 2014 and question how different it was for those who lived through ‘The troubles’. Emotion was felt by all when two key note speakers delivered their experiences and stories of life in a divided Ireland.
