Ulster Tower

“The Ulster Tower is a memorial to the men of the 36th (Ulster) Division. It was officially opened on 19th November 1921 by Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson. The tower is located close to the Schweben Redoubt, a German stronghold at the edge of Thiepval Wood, France, which the Ulster Division attacked at 7.30 am on the 1st July 1916.” “This mural was dedicated to the men of the 36th (Ulster) Division on 31st July 2010 by the West Belfast Athletic And Cultural Society. ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends’ – John 15:13”.

Here We Stand

Cuchulainn, defender of Northern Ireland: “Here we stand, here we remain: we simply want to take our God-ordained place as indigenous Ulster people, understanding and living out our identity without shame, retaliation, or indignation against those who have caused harm to our past and tried to castrate our culture, our identity and our place on this island.”

Together We Stand Alone

“Together we stand alone, we band of brothers.” The four panels show the Ulster Volunteers become soldiers of the 36th Division, leaving the north vulnerable to nationalist attack (“Deserted I Stand Alone“) but raising the Division flag in the style of the Marine Corps monument in Arlington National Cemetery (USA). (This panel takes the place of the hooded gunmen that were previously in the centre.)
