Falls Curfew July 1970

2010 mural (unveiled July 4th on the 40th anniversary) of Máire Drumm (WP) and the women of West Belfast breaking the British army curfew of the Lower falls in 1970 (brief interview footage from the 9:00 minute mark). Maire Drumm was later shot dead in her bed in the Mater hospital where she was a patient.

The commemorative plaque that was next to Elaine’s and the Sinn Féin office was later moved to the top right corner of the mural. [M05736]
