Hanging Tower

Derry Gaol was built in 1791 with towers added in 1824, including the one shown above for executions by hanging. The rest of the prison was demolished in 1973; this tower lives on as a small WWI museum. For more info, see Rambling Wombat.

St Joseph’s

Restoration on the exterior St Joseph’s chapel in Sailortown – a Catholic church decommissioned in 2001 – is set to begin this month (BelTel). The building, originally constructed in 1880, is in such a state that it was declared a dangerous building earlier this year (Irish News). Here are three images from the front: a masonry rose above the door; a plaque to two young girls who were killed by a UDA car bomb in 1972; and a wide shot. BelfastLive has a gallery of the interior, which also needs restoration.

Harley Quinn

Not happy with his Tyrion Lannister, Visual Waste (Web | Fb | twturned it into Harley Quinn (in her more recent incarnation by Margot Robbie in the Suicide Squad movie) within a few days. The title of the piece is ‘Split the problem, not your personality’, giving the work a mental health message.
The mural was then quickly “enhanced” by members of TMN (second image).  The wide shot, third below, shows the trio of Dan Kitchener’s The Dream, Friz’s Tyger, Tyger, and the Visual Waste piece.
