Spirit Of Freedom

2013-03-07 SpiritOfFreedom+
2011 mural in the Bogside of London-/Derry/Doire featuring republican hunger strikers (the ten who died in the Maze, along with Frank Stagg and Michael Gaughan, who died in English prisons in the 70s), along with an oak leaf symbolizing the city of Derry. Chains, rather than a celtic design, serve as a frame for the main mural.
A close-up of the piece to the left, which “is dedicated to all those who tragically died on the streets of Derry during the hunger strike era” and features head-shots of various Óglaigh na hÉireann volunteers, can be found below.
