Unite And Fight

The INLA declared a ceasefire in 1998 but did not begin decommissioning its weapons until 2009. The graffiti shown above (Rossville St, Derry) calls on it to unite with hard-line republicans from the Continuity and Real IRAs.

Dead Man Walking

Denis Donaldson, IRA and Sinn Féin member, was killed by a shotgun blast to the chest in April 2006. He was living in a Donegal cottage after being outed as an Mi5 and Special Branch informer. The Real IRA later (2009) claimed responsibility. Next to that graffiti is “Vote your No. 1 army” (previously seen in 2005) with a number of modifications: it looks as though “Real” was replaced with “C” (Continuity IRA) and then all of the modifiers have been deleted in favour of simply “IRA”. Gartan Square, Derry.
