Belfast Murals

This is a picture of the mural of Bobby Sands on the Falls road in west Belfast

Bobby Sands Mural

In this picture you can see how big the mural actually is!

Belfast's troubled history has seen many tragedies and atrocities. These atrocities are illustrated in the many murals dotted all over Belfast, painted on the sides of houses.

These murals are today (these pictures were taken at the start of 2006) a major Belfast attraction for tourists. In the past, however, they were a way for the residents of Belfast's troubled areas to get their points across, or make a plea or demand that the rest of world can see. Some of the murals are commemorations of something that has happened in the past, or a memorial of people that have been killed.

In this part of my site you can see murals from both sides of the political divide. I have 4 main sections - 3 nationalist areas: The Falls Road ; Ballymurphy/Whiterock ; and Ardoyne , and 1 unionist area: The Shankill .

Below, you can also see pictures of the famous Belfast peace wall . This wall is over 20 feet high, and stretches for miles, separating unionists and nationalists in west Belfast.
