A mural in the Bogside area of Derry commemorates the beginning of the struggle in Derry for democratic rights, February 21, 2013. Historically most of the hundreds of murals across Northern Ireland promoted either republican or loyalist political beliefs, often glorifying paramilitary groups such as the Irish Republican Army or the Ulster Volunteer Force, or commemorating people who lost their lives in paramilitary or military attacks. However, since the paramilitary ceasefires some of the paintings have become less sectarian, celebrating sporting successes and cultural achievements. Picture taken February 21, 2013.

A boy walks past an Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) mural on the Shankill Road in Belfast, northern Ireland in this September 14, 2005 file photo. Change in Northern Ireland may be so slow it appears imperceptible, but the writing is on the wall for one of the most negative of its cultural traditions - murals glorifying paramilitary violence. With the Irish Republican Army pledging to down arms against British rule and pressure mounting on pro-British paramilitaries to follow suit, the menacing paintings that for decades symbolised Northern Ireland's conflict have started to be replaced.

its commitment to the Northern Ireland peace process is under strain.
