Freedom

m00861

“Freedom: For freedom you fasted & died/For the five rights you were denied/For the evil we know to blame/For England shrouded in shame/For the deaths of young Irish lives/For the oath of a country that cried/For the murder of a lark in the sky.” This poem seems to be unique in Irish muraling – if you know anything about it, please leave a comment. Also (possibly) unique is the sword with wings. Fountain Street, Strabane.

West Tyrone Roll Of Honour

m00845

m00846

This is an entirely repainted and expanded mural listing the West Tyrone Roll Of Honour. The portrait of Bobby Sands that was originally included in Everyone, Republican Or Otherwise is gone, leaving only the quote from Sands (as shown in the second image). In his place on the right is a volunteer in a hat with a tricoloured band; on the left, the firing party of the previous mural is replaced by a volunteer with AK-47. The names in the roll of honour remain the same though they have been rewritten in a greater space.
