State Sponsored Killings

“This mural is dedicated to the memory of those killed and maimed by rubber & plastic bullets fired by the police & British Army. Not one member of the security forces ever served a day in jail for the deaths, many of them children, despite the courts ruling on the innocence of the victims. Plastic bullets are still being used on the streets of the north of Ireland today.”

The memorial to seventeen people killed by rubber or plastic bullets since 1970 is at the centre of 13 panels of portraits, in a wall “dedicated to the families who have fought and are still fighting for truth and justice for their loved ones. It is also dedicated to all those who have died as a result of state-sponsored killings. This Project is a work in progress and is not conclusive. If you wish a loved one to be included please contact An Fhírinne … Tá an balla seo tiomnaithe do na teaghlaigh a throid agus atá ag troid go fóill, thar ceann a muintire ionúine, ar son na fírinne agus na córa. Tá sé tiomnaithe fosta dóibh siúd uilig a fuair bás de dheasca maruithe státurraithe. Obair idir lamha atá sa tionscnamh seo agus níl sé críochnaithe go fóill. Dá mba mhian leat duine de do mhuintir ionúin féin a bheith curtha san áireamh, iarrtar ort teagmháil a dhéanamh leis An Fhírinne.”
