Belfast-The notorious Divis Flats complex is now all demolished except the Divis Tower, it was a heavy duty Republican stronghold with serious IRA activity. The first child to die in the troubles died here, 9 year old Patrick Rooney. During the height of the troubles the British Army put an'Spy Post' on the roof of Divis Tower the tallest building but the area was so dangerous the soldiers could only be resupplied by helicopter there was no way they could come down the stairs.
