Neamhcromtha, Neamhbhriste

“Unbowed, unbroken.” This is a version of the earlier Éire/Ireland mural (depicted as a female in the centre of the mural) seen in 2005.  Portraits of 18 local republicans are included, beginning with Charlie Monahan and Murtagh McAstocker. This mural is similar to the earlier one on the shop gable (which had 16 portraits).

The plaque to the left reads “Dedicated to the memory of the volunteers of B company 3rd battalion Belfast brigade Óglaigh na hÉireann who died fighting for an Irish socialist republic. Fuair siad bás ar son saoirse na hÉireann.”
