The Hospital of the Maze Prison. This was the scene of the 1981 hunger strikes in which 10 republican prisoners died. Her Majesty's Prison (HMP) Maze, also known as Long Kesh and the H-Blocks, held some of the most dangerous men in Europe during its 30 year operation. The prison closed in September 2000 after 428 prisoners had been released under the Good Friday Agreement.
