… And Short Strand Too!

This is a two-part electoral mural from Sinn Féin: on the left, the mural is for the specific candidacy of local man Niall Ó Donghaille – he was successfully elected to Belfast City Council and served as Lord Mayor; on the right, for Sinn Féin generally, using words from (the song) On The One Road (here’s a Wolfe Tones rendition): “Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Donegal” … and Short Strand too!

Mountpottinger Road, Belfast, which has its own Visual History page.
