Spending time in Belfast and going on a black taxi tour was one of the most memorable things I did while living in Ireland this summer. Murals in Northern Ireland are arguably the most famous in the world. Almost 2,000 murals have been documented in Belfast and its surrounding cities since the 1970’s. The murals are often political or commemorate a person and past events. This mural shows the Ulster Defense Association/Ulster Freedom Fighters. This mural is on Sandy Row in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Sandy Row is a Protestant working class community and it has a population of 3,000 and is considered a staunchly loyalist area of Belfast. Observing the culture in both the Protestant and Catholic sides of Belfast was an invaluable experience that I will always remember.
