Up On The Roof

2014-09-17 TowerMcCreesh+
Six of the seven New Lodge tower blocks each feature two hunger strikers, on the narrow sides of the building. Those featured are the ten who died in 1981 along with Frank Stagg and Michael Gaughan. Here are images of five of them. Above is Raymond McCreesh, below is Kieran Doherty with a tricolour and ‘Justice for the Craigavon 2’, third is Martin Hurson and a Palestinian flag, fourth is Francis Hughes, and fifth is Frank Stagg. An annotated Google map and a table at the bottom of the page give the Irish, English and former names of the flats (“houses”) as well as their locations and the hunger strikers on each.
