BRY – RIRA – CIRA

This series of images comes from the Lecky Road, Derry underpass. Patsy O’Hara, Joe McDonnell, and Tom McElwee get individual boards. Unusually, both the Real IRA and Continuity IRA are included in the final panel.

BRY 1969

The Roll Of Honour (to the hunger strikers) we have seen before, in 2003 and 2004. New is the BRY (Bogside Republican Youth) mural to the right, claiming to date back to 1969, with the shield of Ulster on a Tricolour and fadas randomly distributed over “tiocfaidh ár lá”. Lecky Road, Derry.

Ardoyne, The Bone And Ligoniel

“This mural is dedicated to the memory of those local republican activists [34 portraits of volunteers from “A, D, F foireannacha, cathlann 3rú, Briogaid mBeal Feirste”] who devoted their lives to the cause of Irish freedom. Ar son na c[ú]ise. Oglaigh na hÉireann. Unveiled by Sinn Féin councillors Martin Meehan and Margaret McClenaghan.”

“Many suffer so that some day future generations may live in justice and peace – Bobby Sands MP.”

The plaque on the stone is “Dedicated to those friends and neighbours from Ardoyne, the Bone and Ligoniel whose contribution and support to our struggle was and remains invaluable. Aithníonn muid a gcrógacht. Oglaigh na hÉireann. Meán Fómhair 2003.”  Ardoyne Avenue, Belfast.
