“F” For Fascist

“Only fascists stand with ‘Soldier F’.” Lasair Dhearg (web) sticker on the Falls Road about the trial of an anonymous British Army soldier charged with the deaths of James Wray and William McKinney on Bloody Sunday.

At the end of September (2020) the Public Prosecution Service ruled that none of the other paratroopers would be charged in connection with the 14 deaths (BBC).

In the sticker, the Nazi swastika has been added to the emblem of the paratroopers, making it look very much like the emblem of the Nazi army.

Keep It Local

The UVF mural in Carrington Street has been paint-bombed. Given the location and the extent of the paint, it’s likely that this was the result of some local (PUL) grievance. It will be interesting to see if it is restored, or replaced or painted out.

For the mural in proper form, see Volunteering.

Uniting Our Community

“Uniting our community to support our community. Thank you NHS & essential workers”. The ‘Lower North Belfast Action Group’ was formed in April this year in response to the pandemic. Based on the “Groups/Areas” involved, ‘lower’ means the area along the lough up as far the White City and Loughview.

Mother Of God

Filming for season six of the BBC police drama Line Of Duty has been taking place in various Belfast locations over the last few weeks. Enniskillen native Adrian Dunbar plays Superintendent Ted Hastings, who likewise has a background in the north, and, although now working (somewhere!) in the English midlands occasionally uses various expressions from home such as “I didn’t float up the Lagan in a bubble” (meaning “I wasn’t born yesterday” or “I’m no fool”), “Now we’re sucking diesel” (“motoring along” or “doing well”), and today’s title (an expression of shock).

The mural is by Waterford artist Caoilfhionn Hanton (web | ig | Fb) in Kent Street for HTN 2020.

Carrick Hill Supports Fiona

It is 15 weeks since Noah Donohoe left home heading for Cave Hill only to end up dead in a north Belfast storm drain. Support for his mother Fiona and the #RememberMyNoah campaign has been widespread, including this tarp in Carrick Hill.
