Crossed Rifles

Pike, pistol, and assault rifles — a brief history of republican weaponry in remembrance of local volunteers and activists. At the centre, below the phoenix, is Stan Carberry, included on a Falls Road plaque. AMCOMRI Street, Belfast. “Erected by Coiste Cuimhneacháin Ard na bhFeá 2003. The plaque reads, “This mural is dedicated to the volunteers of ‘A’ company 2nd batt. Belfast Brigade Óglaigh na hÉireann, to the Sinn Féin members Mid Falls cumann, who militarily and politically gave their all for a 32 county social democratic republic. Their names have been spoken off [sic] among their friends and comrades throughout the years. Now everyone can see the faces and not just hear the names of the ordinary people with extra-ordinary lives.”
