Signage on the 2010 Monach bonfire: “Michael Quinn weres [sic] your ball. Ward 3 South [?of Belfast City hospital?].” “Fuck ur IBA” [a gang of young hoods from CNR St James’s]. And “If Carlsberg watched bonfires, DRL [Dongall Road Loyalists] wuda [“would have”] been [the] best watched bonfire in the world.” There is also a swastika at the bottom. On the night, there was rioting at the site (BelTel).
The other Donegall Road bonfire (at the City Hospital) was set burnt out early (BelTel) and on the night there was a hit and run (BelTel).
