The lower part of Hogarth Street (in Tiger’s Bay) was demolished almost a decade ago and the 20 new houses are almost completed. The homes are being built by Apex Housing Association, which says that “The houses will be modern, functional and attractive; and with public transport links, community and shopping facilities all on your doorstep, the location of Hogarth Street is ideal.” Not so ideal for taigs, though: In case the painted kerb-stones and Ulster Banners weren’t sufficient to get the message across to any Catholics who were thinking of moving in, the graffiti on the left of the street makes it clear that the area is solidly loyalist. It was washed over in reddish paint a few days later.
