The new mural on the international wall, in the style of Punch (and other) magazines’ portrayal of the Irish.
WP entry on the Roma
“The Big Begorra” is a play on The Big Issue, a newspaper published on behalf of, and sold by, homeless people.
“the evening edition collapsed” is a reference to the Belfast Telegraph‘s decision to cease printing an evening edition
This mural does NOT contain a reference to the ‘Free Marian Price’ (WP | FB) campaign, which all of the other murals on the international wall currently (summer 2012) do. It is also sponsored, has an artist’s signature (political cartoonist Ian Knox, a.k.a. Blotski (WP) – pictures of the launch) and date (9 August, 2012 – for Féile 2012) and it has social network tags.
(Replaces a black-and-red ‘Oppose Racism’ mural, which replaced the Liam MacCarthy Cup mural.)
