Plaque for anti-Franco fighters

A plaque has been unveiled to a group of seven men from the Shankill area of Belfast who fought in the Spanish Civil War against General Franco in the 1930s.

Eighty volunteers from the island of Ireland were killed - a quarter of the 320 who left to fight in Spain. Claire Savage reports.
