The previous mural (Sieze Power) can still be seen in the lower left-hand corner of this unfinished mural in Springhill Park, Strabane. The volunteer on the right appears to be holding (uniquely in north of Ireland muraling) not a rifle but a walkie-talkie or perhaps a radio control device for an explosive. The mural attempts to recreate a poster from 1989 (below), entitled “Guerilla Days In Ireland”, which was also the name of Tom Barry’s account of the War Of Independence, and the title of a mural in Derry.
