Places of interest/History
Longkesh is best known as the site of The Maze Prison, also known as Long Kesh. The site had been an airforce base, RAF Long Kesh, but in 1971 it was converted first into what was intended as a temporary camp for republican internees. Later, it was expanded into a maximum security prison, used to hold convicted prisoners from both sides of the communal divide during the long years of the Troubles.
