Pop Goes Northern Ireland (1972) at the Linen Hall with Tim McGarry and Malachi O’Doherty

Monday 15 August, 7.00pm • Performance Area • £5

1972 was the year in which the chaos came to the Linen Hall Library. First the bookstore on College Square North was bombed in January, and then the library building was damaged by a blast in Fountain Street in May. This reflected the wider experience in Belfast and beyond as the violence escalated throughout the year.

Showing live footage from the year, comedian Tim McGarry and commentator Malachi O’Doherty reflect on the chaos of 1972.

This project has been funded by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs.


This event is fully booked.
