Belfast, Ireland – Murals

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. – Plato


So incredibly sad about the bombings at the Boston Marathon. My thoughts and prayers are with all those suffering.

While in Belfast we had a tour throughout the city of the many murals. I was so looking forward to this part of our trip, however, it was horrible weather! Rain and snow and very difficult to see.

According to Wikipedia… Northern Ireland contains arguably the most famous political murals. Almost 2,000 murals have been documented in Northern Ireland since the 1970s. The murals tend to represent one side’s political point of view, or commemorate an event or person(s) involved in the history of Northern Ireland, particularly during the Troubles.

I don’t pretend to know the background or politics behind the murals, but loved looking at the artwork and appreciate the idea of the murals to relay a point of view.
