“It is not those who can inflict the most but those who can endure the most who will conquer.” 1981 hunger-striker Francis Hughes is flanked by blanketmen Hugh Rooney and Freddie Toal and surrounded by a host of other Republican faces (a partial list is below) in this 2011 mural commemorating the 30th anniversary of the strikes. Painted by Sean McVeigh (according to this source).
