Bobby Sands

A smiling Bobby Sands on the side of the Sinn Féin offices on the Falls Road, (also the west Belfast office of An Phoblacht), with his famous statement that “Everyone, republican or otherwise, has his [here: “his/her”] own [particular] part to play” (and the lark with its “spirit of freedom“). This version was painted by Mo Chara in 1989, and an image of Sands has been on the wall continuously since then. Sevastopol Street, Belfast.
