INLA Roll Of Honour

Six INLA volunteers are remembered on a memorial stone in the City Cemetery, Derry. The other memorial is to the ten deceased 1981 hunger strikers (“They were ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances whose steadfast resolve, discipline, and unity of purpose prevailed”) and five local “comrades and friends”.

Bua Nó Bás

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”.

The Cause Stays The Same

m01067

“The weaponry has changed …” from the rifles used by James Connolly’s ICA of 1916 to the AK-47 of the Bobby Sands-inspired IRA of 1991, “… but the cause stays the same.” Both weapons are crossed with the pike of Emmet’s 1798 against a Tricolour. Also present are a hat (see History Ireland) and a beret.

Beechmount Avenue, Belfast.
