Light through prison bars illuminates a prostrate hunger striker attended by two women, one of whom wears a headscarf in the tricolours – this board is from 1986. Below it (visible in the wide shot) is an earlier Easter Rising commemoration mural (from 1991) with portraits of the seven signatories to the proclamation arranged around a large lily.
