“Keep on marching, don’t give up – Raymond McCreesh 1957-81. Died after 61 days hunger-strike, H-Block Long Kesh 1981.” The phrase was spoken at the end of a visit with Jim Gibney. “Beidh bua againn go fóill” [victory will be ours yet]. The mural is on the Quarter Road gable of “Raymond McCreesh House/Teach Réamoinn Mhic Raois”, at Maryville Camlough.
