I found this old photograph in an antiques shop on the Donegall Pass in Belfast about 15 years ago, of two workmen with crowbars at work on the Giant's Causeway, clearly dislodging parts of the world famous basalt columns. (click the photo to enlarge)
On the back is handwritten "1958". The Giant's Causeway was acquired by the National Trust in 1961. How much of Northern Ireland's heritage - natural, built and cultural - was destroyed in days gone by?
