Heavy traffic on the Ormeau Bridge
Heavy traffic on the Ormeau Bridge
The Ormeau Bridge spans the River Lagan. It is the territorial divide between the Catholic enclave of the Lower Ormeau and the more mixed Upper Ormeau Road area of South Belfast. The transition between the two areas are marked by the appearance of Loyalist flags on the lamp posts. In the past clashes would occur in the vicinity of the Ormeau Bridge with the Nationalists of the Lower Ormeau Road attempting to stop Orange Order feeder parades originating in the Ballynafeigh Loyalist enclaves from making their way across towards the city centre.
