Anti-Orange Marches Mural

Later, the issue of Orange Order marches figures prominently in a number of murals. For example, one, painted in Ardoyne Avenue, North Belfast in August 1997, depicted the nationalist population as being trampled down by the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), who hold up their riot shields to allow Orange Order marchers to proceed.

Location and Date: Ardoyne Avenue, Belfast, 1997
