Cormac (Brian Moore) was the cartoonist for Republican News/An Phoblacht, his “Notes” cartoon appearing weekly. In the strip reproduced above on Beechmount Avenue, Belfast, a republican dares to be happy despite the troubles — “three British soldiers sent to eternity/The M-60 kettling so merrily” — and “a bleak and hopeless future of poverty and unemployment”.
