The Bobby Sands mural in Sevastopol Street has been given a facelift, including the blocking-up of a vent on Sands’s left cheek. Kieran Doherty and Joe McDonnell have been added in place of the 1798 medallions on each side. On the side-wall are Sean McCaughey, ten doves representing the 1981 hunger-strikers, and Long Kesh. Aerosol‘s accordion-player paste-up has been also been retained.

Ag sráid Sevastopol cuimhnitear ar Bobby Sands i múrmhaisiú a authnitear ar fud an domhain. Ba scribhneoir, file, réabhlóidí agus díograiseoir Gaeilge é Sands. Fuair sé bas 5 Bealtaine 1981 tar éis 66 lá ar stailc ocrais. As ucht na diograise a thaispeáin Sands agus a chomhchimí i leith thoglaim na teanga faoi choinníollacha uafásacha Bhlocanna H na Ceise Fada, spreagadh glúin úr chun dul i mbun athghabháil na Gaeilge.
Here at Sevastopol Street Bobby Sands is remembered in a mural which has become world-renowed. Sands, a writer, poet, revolutionary and Gaelic enthusiast, died on May 5th 1981 after 66 days on hunger strike. Sands and his fellow prisoners inspired a new generation to reclaim the Irish language enthusing them by the huge efforts they put into learning Irish in the horrendous conditions on the H Blocks of Long Kesh.
