LA’s Walk Of Fame

Holy Cross Girls’ Primary is a Catholic school within the loyalist enclave of Glenbryn in upper Ardoyne. Although it is in the style of the Los Angeles Dodgers (baseball team) “LA” in this case stands for “loyalist Ardoyne”. The school was the site of some extraordinary scenes during 2001 as police and army formed a cordon against local protesters so that children could reach the school. (See It’s Black And White.)
