This Sandy Row mural commemorating the siege of London-/Derry is in pretty good shape, despite being more than 20 years old. It features the coat of arms of Londonderry – see this post – Vita, Veritas, Victoria – for some background. For more on the siege, and relief, of Derry, see Breaking The Boom. The siege ended in 1689; the battle of the Boyne was in 1690. It is in Linfield Avenue and is visible from Rowland Way, off Sandy Row.
