About Big E

Where He Grew Up

Big E was born in West Belfast in 1967 and lived there until 1994. He now lives 15 miles outside Belfast in a village that would be regarded as a mixed region, where both Protestants / Unionists and Catholics / Nationalists live peacefully as neighbours and mix together very well socially

A New Experience

This experience was entirely new to Big E, it was entirely new to almost all those who moved from Belfast, since we all were raised in either 100% protestant/unionist areas or 100% catholic/nationalist areas, and the only interaction between the divide was in the mixed city centre or at flashpoint regions, which was not very often in most peoples' lives.

A New Perspective

Though we all have our own opinions, the time from 1994 has given BIG E the opportunity to understand the opinions and perspectives of those from the other side of the divide, and to discuss and debate with them and others the important issues of politics and history of our communities.
