A Traitor And A Murderess

“[The] Anglo-Irish Agreement proved one to be a traitor, the other the murderess she is.” The portraits are presumably of Margaret Thatcher and Garrett FitzGerald, who signed the agreement at Hillsborough Castle in November, 1985, though it is difficult to tell them apart – which is perhaps the point. A good picture of the pair can be found at the top of this Guardian article on the crafting of the document. This is the fifth (extreme right) of five murals on a wall in Ballycolman estate, Strabane.
