The Sinn Féin press centre on the Falls Road, Belfast, is named for anti-Treaty IRA man Joe McKelvey, who was also the founder of the O’Donovan Rossa GAA club in Belfast. The mural features the shields of the four provinces and Sinn Féin in celtic lettering.

Two images of an almost complete Nuada mural by Mo Chara in Springhill Avenue, Belfast. The only thing that seems to be missing is the (titular) lettering, which would go in the red circle – “This is Nuada, king of the Tuatha Dé Danann.” The mural is based on the illustrations of Jim Fitzpatrick.

Tell The World, Freedom Is At Hand

1987 version of the ANC-IRA mural on Beechmount Avenue, Belfast. Benjamin Moloise’s words on the right and the letters “IRA” below the shield have been painted out (perhaps to repair the paint-bombing visible in the 1986 version Tell The World Freedom Is At Hand) but more paint has been thrown over the mural and “UVF” has been spray-painted on.
