Free Niall Lehd

Larne man and member of the Continuity IRA or Irish Republican National Congress (IRNC – see Join The IRNC and Maid Of Erin; also IRPC, who now have a Fb page, as does the Free Niall Lehd campaign) member Niall Lehd was initially arrested on explosives charges in 2014 (BBC-NI) and given early release in 2016 (An Phoblacht). He is associated with Ciaran Maxwell, who says that he became a republican bomb-maker out of fear (RTÉExpress). He was returned to jail in March (Irish News).
Below is a wide shot from 2018-02 showing the advertising hoarding that appears to be disused and (another shot of) the ‘RIP Jamie’ graffiti below.

Walled Garden

Work continues at the site opposite The Sunflower (Union Street and Kent Street). Nine murals (at least) were lost when the building but the substantial hoarding is providing artists with a temporary canvas. Above are sunflowers by Conor McClure (web | Fb | tw – see previously More Wolf Than Woman | Spring Wings); below are pieces by TMN crew members – MASH and “Skynet“.

Drug Dealers Will Be Shot

Action Against Drugs (AAD) is a republican paramilitary organisation (the “son of DAAD”, says The Guardian) that killed two people in 2017 that it accused of dealing drugs and ordered three others to leave Ireland (Irish News | Republican News). Allegations of corruption have been made against similar organisations (Belfast Media).
