Monkstown 1st Batt UDA

This is a new version of the Monkstown UDA 1st battalion mural on Devenish Drive. The previous showed volunteers on manoeuvres in front of Three Mile Water aqueduct in the top portion. This new mural shows graveside volunteers with assault rifles point down, mourning William Hobbs and James Boyd McClurg. The two died from a premature bomb explosion on May 10th, 1977, across the road from the mural in Seagoe Gardens; Hobbs died immediately, McClurg of his injuries a few weeks later. “All gave some, some gave all.”

Fountain Young Defenders

Neither the Fountain Young Defenders or the Young Loyalists seem to have existed as an organisation, just as an idea in the mind of an artists on the walls of Wapping Lane. “No surrender 09”, “UDA Fountain Wombles“.
