Wall murals in Northern Ireland: a unique tradition
Loyalists have been painting political wall murals in the North of Ireland since 1908, and republicans since 1981. I have been photographing murals in Northern Ireland systematically since 1981 and now have around 2,000 images. Some of these have been reproduced in the four books I have published on the subject. Three of those books are available for sale through the 'Shop' link above.
On this site you will find a sample of the republican and loyalist murals. And on the next page you will find an article tracing the history of the tradition.
