Murals of Northern Ireland - Digital Collection

This digital collection entitled Murals of Northern Ireland includes close to 600 images. Hosted by Claremont Colleges Digital Library, the collection presents “murals from Northern Ireland, principally West Belfast, Republican and Loyalist, painted during the recent period of Troubles. The images are records which include historical representation, political standpoints, community concerns, forms of ideological address. They range from overtly political declaration, to brutal depictions of the conflict, to humour and irony.”

A video of a lecture entitled Speaking through walls: political murals in Northern Ireland by Tony Crowley, the photographer, explains the collection.
