The People Arose In 69

M00217+

This is (as of 2016) the oldest continuously maintained mural in Belfast (in Clowney Street). It was touched up in 1987 and 1990, and was repainted in 2013. It features a central phoenix and the shields of the four provinces, and two rhyming couplets: The people arose in 69/they will do it again at any time. Maggie Thatcher think again/don’t let our brave men die in vain.
