Last month we published a list of places we really missed in Belfast.

We came up with 19 places and asked you to add to the list.

The response was phenomenal with thousands of you sharing the post and adding your favourite locations which have sadly closed down.

So what started as a list of 19 places is now sitting at 106 places.

The biggest omission on our part was The Network with hundreds of people wanting it added to the list.

On the other hand no one seems to miss The Gadget Shop which used to be on the first floor in Castle Court.
