Hunger Strike


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.
