Changing Murals in Northern Ireland - 28 Feb 2013
Photographer Cathal McNaughton spent time documenting street art across Northern Ireland. Historically most of the hundreds of murals there 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.
