Unbroken Continuity

Liam Mellows was commander of the Western Division of the Irish Volunteers during the Rising and anti-Treaty Sinn Féin TD executed by firing squad in December 1922. Sinn Féin was founded in 1905 (see previously one | two) but this is an anti-Agreement board.

Next to the Mellows board is South Down PIRA graffiti (seen previously in 2001) and the flags of Palestine and Lebanon. All three images are from the junction of Carnagat Road and Camlough Road in Newry.
