This is a 2004 image of the North’s longest-lasting mural. It was painted in 1981 and survives to the present day. It was painted before the custom took hold of putting flags on pikes in order to include the 1798 rebellion. Anne St/Glenanne, Derry. Seen previously in 1982.

“Éire Nua” was (and is) the name of a Sinn Féin policy document first produced in 1979 and subsequently updated; Republican Sinn Féin split off in 1986 and – like Na Fianna Éireann and Continuity IRA – still supports the vision outlined in it. Notable here is the inclusion of a (now-defunct) web address. Divis Street, Belfast.
