The peace walls are a significant symbol of the division and conflict that took place in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. However, in recent years, there have been efforts to bring the communities together and take down the peace walls. While some have been removed, many still remain as a reminder of the past and the ongoing process of reconciliation in Northern Ireland.
The Bobby Sands mural depicts Sands, who was an Irish Republican and a member of the Provisional Irish Republican Army, who died while on hunger strike in 1981 while imprisoned in the Maze Prison in Northern Ireland. The mural serves as a tribute to Sands and the broader Irish Republican movement, and visitors will learn about the history and significance of the hunger strike and the wider conflict in Northern Ireland.
At the International Wall, you will have the opportunity to see murals that showcase various forms of oppression around the world, not just limited to the Northern Ireland conflict. The murals may depict events such as the civil rights movement in America, the struggles of the Palestinian people, and other similar themes. The wall serves as a platform to raise awareness and inspire activism against injustices and oppressive regimes. You will learn about the cultural and political significance of these murals and the impact they have on local and global communities.
