Harland & Wolff sounds horn after twenty years in NHS tributes (Video)

Yesterday evening the city of Belfast wasn’t full with the sound of traffic and people, but instead a sound not heard in 20 years.

That sound was the Harland & Wolff shipyard horn sounding, as employees stood atop of the famous cranes and clapped for those in the NHS. #ClapFirCarers

What has now become a regular event on a Thursday evening at 8pm, has saw many take to their doorsteps out of respect for not just the NHS workers but now for all key and essential workers.

On their social media, the shipyard posted the following:

Tonight (Thursday), we simply wanted to share our gratitude to all workers in the NHS and other critical services across Northern Ireland, the UK and globally, as we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them in these unprecedented times.

“The word ‘hero’ is often overused and overdone, but that is the best and most fitting description of our nurses, doctors and everyone – and we mean everyone – currently working and volunteering in the health service and all other critical services.

“The sounding of the Harland and Wolff horn is, with all things in consideration, a very small gesture. However, we feel that it served as a siren of solidarity, hope and tenacity for Belfast, Northern Ireland and the UK as a whole.
