In Proud Memory

2001 image of the Sandy Row UDA funeral volley mural previously seen in 1997. The same “fuck Rangers” graffitist who sprayed the Sandy Row UFF ‘wings’ mural also got to this mural. “In proud memory of our fallen comrades. We forget them not – at the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.” Boyne Court, Belfast.

I Refuse To Change

On the main gable wall, a funeral volley of three volunteers fires over the coffin of Bobby Sands, with the beginning of a quote from Sands: “I refuse to change to sui[t people who oppress, torture and imprison me. They have suppressed my body and attacked my dignity, but I have the spirit of freedom that cannot be quenched by even the most horrendous treatment.]”

On the side wall, a prisoner is crucified, with the words “St Peter, let these men enter heaven, for they have served their time in hell.” – a variation on James Donahue’s WWII Soldier’s Poem (WP).
