I'll just reiterate what other VT-ers have written about the Troubles.

People are still raw, the peace is still fragile (there are still killings....one happened in June 2010), the whole thing is still unutterably painful.

Not something to discuss, and certainly not something to ask about.

You'll be perfectly safe exploring the city, you don't need to worry about that. But whatever you might think you know, keep it to yourself. People need time to heal, to move forward, to make a better life for their children. They don't need to answer your questions, or to be reminded of the past.
