You might want to do the people of this lovely island a service and read about the events that lead up to 1974 and the subsequent split before you visit.
Many words and pictures have been created around this topic and too numerous to mention so I am including some links to books and dvds available right now.
This page is not making a statement,taking sides or generally offering an opinion. It is merely offering the viewer some idea of what is available regarding the situation.
And there are 2 sides to every story so I will endeavour to provide information for all where possible.
If you have any links you would like me to point to, please do not hesitate to let me know, if useful to a viewer, using the get in touch page.
I think it is only right to provide at least some information about the conflict to visitors as it is a fact of life on this island whether you like it or not.
