Sons Of Ulster Flute Band

The Sons Of Ulster (Fb)/UVF mural in Conway Walk is repainted (compare with 2006). The main wall adds some new names on the far left (Metcalfe and Balmer); the side wall is converted to an image of the 36th (Ulster) Division going over the top.

[UVF 1st (West Belfast) Brigade, A company, Platoon] No 5. Sons of Ulster f[lute] b[and]. Vol Noel Kinner, with Thomas (Tombo) Kinner and a dozen other names. See the 2006 for (limited) information.

“In times of need they Volunteered/Came forth to do the right/They never shirked nor faltered/In their noble, gallant fight.//A gratitude to one and all/To all of Ulster’s best/You will never be forgotten/In our hearts and thoughts you rest.”

Mourneview Youth

Here is the scene at Mourne Road along the side of the Mace (later a Spar). On the low wall is a ‘Mourneview Youth’ mural (presumably by BlazeFX) – there were previously LVF murals on this wall. In the bricked-up windows are a series of cultural panels, on the Battle Of The Boyne, music, William McFadzean’s VC, fire, faith, defence (WWI), plus one other (perhaps ‘school’?)
