Sevastopol Street (Bobby Sands)

****On-Going Project****

The most famous mural in Belfast is probably the Bobby Sands mural on the side of the Sinn Féin office and Siopa na hEalaine at the corner of the Falls Road and Sevastopol Street. The first Sands mural was painted in 1989 but the wall had seen four different murals before then.

The images in this post are from the Peter Moloney Collection unless noted otherwise.
