Here is the finished version of the murals “in progress” in a post from a few days ago (see that post for the photographs on which the mural is based), one supporting Marian Price (WP) and the other commemorating three events in March 1988.
25 years ago – 1988 – puts us firmly in the era of video, and so you can see footage on youtube relating to each of these events:
Death On The Rock, a famous Thames Television production about the SAS killings of IRA members Mairéad Farrell, Danny McCann and Seán Savage on March 6th in Gibraltar.
Michael Stone’s attack on mourners at their funerals in Milltown cemetery, March 16th, which killed Thomas McErlean, John Murray, and Caoimhín Mac Brádaigh (Kevin Brady).
Kevin McCracken funeral, March 17th (died on March 14th).
The memorial depicted in the background of the mural is a civil war memorial in Ballyseedy, Co. Kerry (WP). Here is a copy of Tragedies In Kerry.
These pieces replace the ‘We demand POW status NOW’ mural. (Guernica is to the right.)
I love this blog. Thank you. Keep up the good work!
