Sans Peur

It’s not clear how long this mural has been in place (possibly 1994 or earlier), but this is a design (four wings of the UDA in the quadrants of an Ulster Banner shield) with a long heritage – see 1988 in the Fountain, Londonderry, 1990 in the Waterside, Londonderry, 1988 variation in Belfast.

For a view of the “Ulster 1690” behind the wall, see Extramural Activity.

UDA Tour Buses

“WBTA/Travel Ireland Coaches load UDA tour buses – scum” (or possibly, ” … UDA scum tour buses”). “WBTA” = West Belfast Taxi Association (taxitrax)

Please get in touch if you know what this piece of St James’s Park graffiti refers to.

UDA South-East Antrim Brigade

The small plaque in the alcove behind the Eastway club is replaced by a much more substantial stone: “South-East Antrim Brigade. This memorial is dedicated to the memory of the officers and members of our organisation who were murdered by the enemies of Ulster and to those who paid the supreme sacrifice whilst on active service during the present conflict. Quis separabit. ‘They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old/Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn/At the going down of the sun and in the morning/We will remember them’.”

Stevie ‘Top Gun’ McKeag

The new mural to UDA assassin Stevie ‘Top Gun’ McKeag is at last completed. It was seen in progress in January (from D collection), July and August of 2010 and it replaces a version that itself might never have been completed, from 2009. The mural has been repainted many times, in quick succession, perhaps an indication of dissatisfaction with it or with the plaster. See also 2008 and 2007.

Champions Of Ulster

This 2009 memorial garden in Owenroe Drive, Bangor caused controversy when built using Housing Executive funds as it was intended to commemorate only the dead of WWI. In addition, it contains headstones to members of the UDA (on which Cuchulainn is invoked as a “defender of Ulster”), RHC, and UVF (BelTel).
