Francis H.

Belfast, Ireland

I am a fully qualified Irish history teacher and college lecturer who has been undertaking tours in Belfast and Ireland for over 20 years.

I tailor each tour to the group or individual and provide detailed insights to the spaces and places you will visit. My tours are unique as they provide access to people who actually lived through the 'Troubles' and also detail the many stories of the victims who were maimed and died during a 30 year terrorist campaign that left 1000's dead.

As a result of the ongoing coronavirus travel issues and in order to make your travel experience a safe one I have completed a Post Grad Certificate at Johns Hopkins Univerisity (Foundations of Global Health Specialization) in International Travel Preparation, Safety, & Wellness as well as an ongoing course on Epidemics at The University of Hong Kong.

My work was recognized by two National Training Awards and a local Community Relations Award. My tours can be experienced simply as a tourist or for those interested in conflict causes/effects also provide validated insights into the history of Belfast and Ireland that is used in East Coast USA universities today.

I am a published author on Irish history and I provide free downloadable resources that can be used during and after each tour. I provide a safe environment for each tour in which my customers can view and experience Belfast's many sites of interest in complete safety and comfort.
