Marching & Dancing

This cross-cultural mural from inside the Cathedral Youth Club, in the Fountain, Londonderry, celebrates both the music of flute-and-drum bands and Irish dancing. The tune illustrated ‘There Is A Green Hill Far Away’ by Cecil Alexander, wife of Church Of Ireland bishop William Alexander. They lived in Strabane and the eponymous hill is said to be one outside the old walls of Derry.

The band dissolved in 1993 but commemorative nights are still held (Sentinel) (and there are recent videos on youtube of a band with this name). Cathedral Youth Club, The Fountain, Londonderry.

Free Seamus Doherty

“Planted evidence – RUC collusion – altered statements. This man is a victim of State manufactured evidence supported by Denis Bradley. Come out and support the campaign for his immediate release.” Seamus Doherty was arrested in June 2003 in connection with two booby-trap car bombs outside Newry in September 2002. The case against him collapsed after the police admitted altering statements to protect an informer, along with police possession of Doherty’s DNA from an unrelated incident. He was released in November, 2004. (An Phoblacht | saoirse32indymedia) Lecky Road, Derry
