|Ireland was one of the first countries to join the MOS back in 2002. After the meeting moved over to Liverpool and Birmingham in the UK, it comes back to Ireland.|
|Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland. It is the largest urban area in Northern Ireland and the province of Ulster and the second-largest city on the island of Ireland.|
In the 2001 census, the population within the city limits was 276.459 while 579.554 people lived in the wider Belfast Metropolitan Area. This made it the fifteenth-largest city in the United Kingdom, but the eleventh-largest conurbation.
Because of the Ireland-conflict, Belfast has been a hot hot place where a lot of crazy things happened. Also the city has a history and culture of wall-painting which makes it kind of special. As most of the murals are military style, some walls are slowly changing with peacefull motives.
