Five small éirígí (web) pieces of graffiti and stenciling from Creeslough Park (at the corner with Lenadoon Avenue), Belfast. The stencils are of James Connolly (“We defy you! Do your worst!”) and the 3-in-1 figure combining police (“RUC-PSNI – different name, same aim”), Orange Order, and paramilitary.

For The Protestant Religion

On one side of the main board in this arch is King Billy and on the other flags and a coat of arms associated with the Orange Order. One of the flags reads “For the Protestant religion – Constitution 1688“; on the ribbon banner are the words “Sit lux [et] lux fuit. [Let there be light, and there was light]”
