1916 Easter 1986


Here is the top half of a mural in Berwick Road/Paráid An Ardghleanna. The board at the top reproduces a 1972 postcard entitled Easter with two women – on the left a young woman (Ireland in flames, perhaps suggesting the Rising) and on the right, an old woman (Mother Ireland?) – watching over a prisoner by the light from a prison window. The bottom (with quotes from Connolly and Pearse) was seen in the 1989 image An Attitude Of Revolt.
