Car park bonfire, Belfast
Every year numerous bonfires are lit in N.Ireland on the 11th July (just prior to the '12th' celebrations LinkExternal link ) to commemorate the victory of Prince William of Orange (King William III) over King James II at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 (see LinkExternal link ). Traditionally bonfires were erected and lit on waste ground but, as increased development in Belfast has removed many of these, bonfires are now erected wherever possible - be it in a car park or even the middle of the road. This car park is located on Posnett Street between Botanic Avenue and Donegall Pass. I didn't see any cars in it......
