2015-09 Refugees Welcome replaces Equality For Travellers
In 2016 the entire wall was repainted for the centenary of the Rising with a long, multi-panel, mural depicting republicanism throughout the centuries, with a focus on connections to Belfast – with the exception of the 32CSM mural in the third spot and a new IRPWA in the final spot. Work began in March; the mural was launched on August 3rd, on the centenary of Casement’s execution.
The first piece painted was the Carson/loyalist gunrunning panel, followed by the historical predecessors panel and the MacDiarmada/projection/local volunteers section (the local volunteers were given vintage uniforms and weapons). Here is the wall in early May with these three in progress: (X0352)
