East Belfast Brigade

The original version of the hooded UFF gunman, with pistol and quotation modelled on the Declaration Of Arbroath (“As long as one hundred of us remain alive …”), was painted on the Newtownards Road in 1994. In their places is a list of the battalions of the East Belfast Brigade (in numerical order): Young Newton, Dee Street, Ballybeen, Castlereagh, and Tullycarnet, plus North Down (see Always A Little Further). The second image below shows the gunman but not the right-hand side painted out (from February 2017); the third image shows the mural in 2015 when it was most recently repainted. Only the UFF fist now remains from the original.
