The WBTA mural (in the new location on the so-called International Wall) is repainted, with the central mural of Bobby Sands replaced with an old (1981) mural in Rockdale St (long gone by 2008; in fact, none of the three murals depicted is extant in 2008), and an internet address added in place of phone numbers.

The orange lily makes a rare appearance in a paramilitary mural. The hooded gunmen are from the UFF/UDA. Volunteer Stephen “Benson” Kingsberry is remembered in the panel towards the back of the house. He died from consuming tainted ecstasy (perhaps distributed by the UVF). He was included in the roll of honour in Lemberg Street. Kilburn Street, Belfast. Seen previously in 2005.
