This Unique James Connolly banner was designed by SHIP and painstakingly hand painted by our good friend, reknown Belfast artist Danny Devenny.
What’s Around 20 years ago, historic Irish Transport & General Workers Union, Belfast Branch membership ledgers made a journey back to Sailortown from where they had originated.
We are pleased to showcase some of the historical contributions that were made by ordinary people, that helped to establish Belfast as a world renowned industrial and maritime city. This new website will be of great benefit to help SHIP reach out to more people and we take this opportunity to thank the National Lottery Heritage Fund for their support in this venture. If anyone has any information or historical documentation that they wish to share with SHIP please feel free to contact us as below.
