Research continues to illustrate the resonance & intensity of feeling that attachment to a locality can generate, within this highlighting the gender-specific impacts created by the intersection of ethnicity & locality. Within the ethnically segregated working class communities of Belfast, the importance of locality takes on added significance. By focusing on a case study of Protestant girls aged 7-8 & 10-11 years living in a predominantly Loyalist community in Belfast, the study demonstrates the significance of locality & the girls' experience of sectarian residential segregation & community conflict in Belfast. The findings highlight the importance of engaging with children to increase our understanding of their lived experiences & to inform policy & decision-making on matters of importance to their lives.
