Liggett & Brady

IRA volunteer Francis Liggett was shot by the British Army in January 1973 as he attempted to rob the Royal. One of the image of Gerry Adams in paramilitary beret comes from Liggett’s funeral. Paddy Brady was a Sinn Féin activist shot in 1984 at his work by the UFF (Sutton). Both were from the St James’s area of west Belfast. Their portraits are on either side of Éire personified. The verses are from Bobby Sands’s poem Weeping Winds.
