A new, computer-designed and -printed board in Twinbrook/Cill Uaighe, with painted lettering below, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Gibraltar killings and subsequent attack on the funeral in Milltown cemetery (for which see also 25 Years – Complete and In Progress).
One of the twin brooks is Colin Burn, which runs through the Colin Glen forest park; Cill Uaighe is reflected in the name of the nearby Kilwee industrial estate. Strictly speaking, this piece is ‘beyond Belfast’, as Poleglass and Twinbrook are under the jurisdiction of Lisburn City Council.
