Trimble Out

David Trimble was leader of the UUP and first First Minister of the new Assembly. This Ballybeen graffiti might date back to that period (1998-2005), as the issue of IRA decommissioning led to suspensions of the parliament and Trimble’s own (temporary) stepping-down. Ballybeen Square, Belfast.

C Company Roll Of Honour

This “C company, 1st Belfast battalion, Ulster Volunteer Force roll of honour” in Carnan Street, Belfast, uses WWI (USSF insignia, an image of soldiers on the battlefield, poppies, and a verse from In Flanders Fields) to commemorate 25 volunteers from the middle Shankill area. (For the first five, see also the plaque across the street.) The “Four Step” was a pub bombed in 1971 (see X02393).

Replaces the Greengairs Thistle FB mural – the band’s insignia is in the top right.
