    Default Latest Belfast Wall Mural Praised by Sinn Fein.

    Gibraltar, Milltown and Turf Lodge mural | An Phoblacht

    I think that Sinn Fein should stop promoting this glorified graffitti as republican culture.

    This latest effort in particular serves only to remind people how the IRA failed to protect mourners who were attacked by a lone unionist marauder.

    Michael was as good a suicide bomber as Jamie was a Hunger Striker

    Seriously though, this mural could just as easily be replicated in a unionists ghetto glorifying the rampage of killer, Michael Stone.

    We will always remember our republican dead, but to do so by painting an image on a gable wall does not do them justice.

    If the IRA had brought guns into Miltown and the Brit Forces shot someone, they would have claimed that they were attacked. FFS, they even got away with that in Ballymurphy & Derry when there were no IRA guns. The unarmed young people who bravely chased the well-armed gunman prevented a much bigger murder spree.

    The only people who knew that there would be no Brit Forces there that day were the Brit Forces & their Loyalist proxies.

    PS: this being the 25th anniversary of the brutal killing of Mairéad, Dan & Séan, it is fitting that they are remembered by their community.

    The IRA at that time was regarded as the most proficient gurreilla army in the world. Was it too much to expect them to carry guns that day, just in case? FFS wise up. It shouldn't have been left to teenagers and young adults to subdue the killer.
