Belfast Rangers Friends Of The Somme

Que Sera Sera

Ross Wilson’s statue ‘Mother – Daughter – Sister’ was launched in 2015 (Art Council NI), two years after his King William mural which towers over it (see final image). “This sculpture celebrates the female cultural identity of Sandy Row and the generational contribution women have made to this community both in the family and workplace.” With a verse from the Doris Day song ‘Que Sera Sera’ from Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Kingdom Of Dalaradia

The HUBB community centre is host to a number of social groups, including those represented in the mosaic above: the Old Comrades group, the Seaview chapter of the Royal British Legion, North Shore and Ladies Somme memorial groups, a spotlight (perhaps in connection with the Civil Defence bowling club? – the HUBB is in what used to be a civil defence building), and the Kingdom of Dalaradia society. According to the eponymous web site, Dalaradia was “was a kingdom of the Cruthin in the north-east of Ireland and parts of Scotland in the first millennium.” Hence, perhaps, the red hand of Ulster and the Scottish thistle.

Sure It’s Good To Talk

Superheroes Hulk, Captain America, Superman, Spiderman, and Wonder Woman fight isolation and depression by passing out the phone number for the Suicide Awareness And Support Group (90239967) and encouraging people to check on each other in Glenbawn.
The wide shot (third) includes the sporting mural seen previously in Hoops, Stripes & Rings. These murals replace a 2005 piece around casts of local children’s hands – the casts have been retained.
