The sixth mural from the Bogside Artists commemorates the 1980 hunger strikes, first in Long Kesh and subsequently in Armagh Women’s Prison. The main figure is Raymond McCartney; the female figure is perhaps Mary Doyle (the other two female strikers were Mairead Farrell and Mairead Nugent). The info board is from 2007. Rossville Street, Derry.
“This mural is dedicated to the H Block/Armagh prison struggle and in memory of [the ten deceased 1981 hunger strikers]. Ní heart go cur le chéile.”
