    Is the mural that says The Red Hand of Ulster still there? It’s the one with the cut off hand of Ó Néill clutching the shores of Ireland. Can you tell me the exact location of it if the mural is still there?

    Thank you.

      This wall (off Shankill Pde) was redeveloped out of existence in stage 1 of the rebuild (circa 2014).

        Are the murals listed on this website updated? Like are they removed from the map when they get taken down? There’s still some masked gunman murals in Belfast and in areas near Belfast right?

        Sam – Yes, no, yes. The map is primarily intended to serve as a historical record rather than as a guide to current murals – we update the years floruit as best we can (which will give you a sense of what might still be showing in 2021, which does include a good number of ‘hooded gunmen’ murals) but we don’t remove murals that are no longer showing.
