Three boards on the Falls Road, Belfast. The first pays homage to Óglaigh na hÉireann (IRA) by mixing ornate knotwork and Celtic imagery of a dolmen and warrior with sword with a volley of pistol and rifle; the second is a list of “local republican POWs”, almost identical to the list in Beechmount POWs (for a list of names see, 1995 Disband RUC); the third links the revolutionaries of 1916 with the armed struggle “1916-1997”.
