How was VE Day celebrated in Northern Ireland?

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day we have put together a short video using clips from our oral history projects to show you how the day was marked across Northern Ireland.

How was VE Day celebrated in Northern Ireland?

They celebrated as only the Northern Irish know how from fancy dress parties in Derry/Londonderry, bonfires in many villages and towns, dancing in Belfast and lots of kissing if the stories are to be believed!

We invite you to listen to how our interviewees remember VE Day and if you have any memories or VE Day stories feel free to comment and share them with us.

We have postponed all oral history interviews until further notice, but you can still share your story with us. We welcome written accounts and we can arrange virtual interviews via Skype, Zoom etc.

If you or someone you know would like to share their story, please get in touch with our The War and Me Oral History Project Coordinator, Michael Burns on 07588634847 or email projects@niwarmemorial.org.
