Mná Na hÉireann/Women Of Ireland

2015-08-14 MnáNahÉireannMid+
Countess Markievicz, carrying a flag of Cumann na mBan, and Ethel Lynch, carrying a flag of the Derry IRA, take centre stage in the Mná na hÉireann mural in London-/Derry/Doire’s bogside. Markievicz is famous for her role in the Easter Rising of 1916 (WP); Lynch died in December 1974 of injuries sustained when a bomb exploded prematurely. (Derry Journal – also contains the photo on which the painting above is based.) Between them, “Liberty leads the people” waving an Irish tricolour.

This is the first of three posts detailing the 2014-09 piece. Launched 2014-09-30. In-progress shot in Derry Journal.
