This photograph by David Hurn, taken in 1970 in a Protestant area of Belfast, is one of the pictures in the book, which has an introduction by John Banville. The photographs, all by Magnum photographers, and organised in decades from 1950 on, splendidly reflect the extraordinary diversity of Irish life and Irish people, as well as the grimness of sectarian conflict.
