Ar Sciatha A Chéile A Mhaireann Na Daoine

“We salute our key workers.” The Irish saying “Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine” means “the people abide in each other’s shadow”. This version of Free Derry Corner shows an NHS doctor and nurse in the shadow of a pair of wings, hence our title: “sciath” = wing or shield.

Unfinished Revolution

When this mural was first painted in October, 2016 there were calls for its removal on account of the re-appearance of a hooded gunman with RPG (Irish News | BelTel), in the style of IRA murals from before the peace (e.g. most similar to this 1989 mural but see also these other examples). It was still present in November of 2018. The “unfinished revolution” is that of the 1916 Easter Rising, represented by the Easter lily.
The mural is next to Junior McDaid House – the offices of the IRPWA (web | Fb) and Saoradh (web) – in Chamberlain Street, Derry – see previously Victory To The Republican Prisoners.
