Pearse Jordan

Pearse Jordan was unarmed when he was killed by the RUC on November 25th, 1992 but in this new Éire Nua Flute Band board he leaves his prints on an assault rifle. (previous Éire Nua board) His killing was ruled unlawful, and subsequent inquest insufficient, by the European Court Of Human Rights in 2001. The campaign for an inquest continues (An Phoblacht).
The words on the board – “Slan [sic] go foill [sic] moh [sic] chara, just for a while/We’ll not have your craic, your jokes, or your smiles/But in years to come, your memory’s still true/A brave son of Ireland, we will not forget you” – are the chorus of The Ballad Of Pearse Jordan (words | sung by The Irish Brigade).
The board is in Hugo Street, which is also the site of his memorial plaque, just above the Evolution Of Our Revolution, as seen in the second image, below.
