Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

Were he alive, Joe Cahill would be 94 years old today.  He stood up for his people, the downtrodden Catholic population of Northern Ireland: They called him a hero. (To others, he was a murderous thug.) His efforts, along with his brothers-in-arms, brought about revolutionary change. In West Belfast, this mural emphasizes the nobility of their cause. [2009]
