The Writing on the Wall: A Visual History of Northern Ireland's Troubles
The Writing on the Wall is a stunning chronological history of Northern Ireland as told through its wall murals, the iconic images depicting the Troubles, conflicts and struggles of its people across religious and political divides. Beginning with representations of the Irish legend Cúchullain, claimed by both Republicans and Loyalists as a founding father of their respective causes, Stuart Borthwick’s work explores landmark events that have shaped Ireland’s history; the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, before focusing on ‘the Troubles’ of more recent memory through chapters dedicated to the formation of Loyalist and Republican paramilitary groups in the late 1960s, the prison protests and hunger strikes of the 1970s and 80s, and the long war of the 1980s and 1990s between the IRA, the British state and armed loyalists.
