William III of England, commonly known as William of Orange, led his troops to victory on July 1st, 1690 at the Battle of the Boyne against the forces of James II, the deposed English monarch and the father of his wife. The Williamite campaign began with successful resistance against the Siege of Derry in 1689 and James’s final defeat came a year later on July 12th, at Aughrim.
The original presentation (from May) of the Whiterock Flute Band mural in Brookmount Street can be seen in M10195. Since then a golden disc has been mounted above the main panel, and to the right have been added another panel of photographs, a list of members past and present, and another info panel.
The fourteenth and final panel in Thorndyke Street contains a number of small panels, including the two above, along with emblems of local Orange and Black lodges, John McCrae’s In Flanders’ Fields, a list of acknowledgements, and a copyright claim.
