Bobby Jackson Mural

A mural depicting William’s conquest of Ireland, including the Crossing Of The Boyne (on the left) and the Siege Of Derry (on the right), was originally painted by Bobby Jackson (Senior) in the 1940s. In 1993, the wall on which the mural was painted was decaying and threatened by redevelopment (and having already been moved once, in the 1970s) and so it was destroyed and replaced, with a plaque in its side reading “The Bobby Jackson Memorial”. A new, very similar, mural was painted (?by Jackson Sr and/or Jackson Jr?) on boards in 1995 and is placed on the wall during the marching season. The Fountain, Londonderry.

The Bobby Jackson mural has its own Visual History page.

Strabane’s Republican Graves

Gravestones to brothers Michael, David, and Hugh Devine, to Charles Breslin, who died alongside Michael and David, to “all those who gave their lives” – “Go luí cré ársa Thír Eoghain go héadrom ar uigheanna ár laochrai uaisle” [May the ancient Tyrone clay lie lightly on the graves of our noble warriors]; this headstone is featured in a Fountain Street mural – and Danny McCauley – “Where there is a struggle for justice, the desire for freedom and resistance to exploitation, there will always be a Danny McCauley.”
