Two pieces by Republican News cartoonist “Cormac” (Brian Moore) are reproduced in Springhill Avenue, Belfast by Mo Chara, one about the unavailability of the paper in a left-leaning London bookshop (because “violence is only acceptable if it doesn’t happen here”), the other showing the Union flag crumbling and the Starry Plough rising from its ashes.

The Felons

From inside the Felons Club in Andersonstown, Belfast: a version of Walter Paget’s Birth Of The Irish Republic above the famous quote from Pearse’s O’Donovan Rossa oration – “The fools, the fools, they have left us our fenian dead, and while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace” — along with portraits of hunger strikers.

For a history of the club in its previous locations, see this Danny Morrison remembrance.
