The Falls Curfew

“I ndíl chuihmne William Burns, died 3-7-70, Charles O’Neill 3-7-70, Zbigniew Uglik 4-7-70, Patrick Elliman 11-7-70, murdered by the British Army during the Falls Curfew of July 3-5 1970. The curfew was finally broken by the courage and determination of the women of Belfast.”

Falls Road, Belfast. Video of the 2005 launch and reenactment of the breaking of the blockade. The plaque for a time moved to the international wall (see the mural to Máire Drumm and the ending of the Falls Curfew) before returning to this spot (next to Elaine’s/Falls Rolls – see Ár Tae Will Come).
