“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.

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.
