Cú Chulainn – the “ancient defender of Ulster from Irish attacks over 2000 years ago” with Ulster banner shield – is made a precursor of the UDA’s East Belfast Brigade – “Ulsters present day defenders”. The volunteer is – unusually – unmasked. Newtownards Road, Belfast.
This is the third gable on the so-called “Freedom Corner” (though it is not clear if it bore this name at the time of this image); here is the second gable. There was a fourth gable but we do not appear to have a picture of its first painting.
