McAllister speaks out against paramilitary mural in West Belfast

Alliance Belfast Councillor Nuala McAllister has condemned a mural which has appeared in West Belfast showing masked paramilitary gunmen firing shots at a republican funeral. The mural is on the corner of Slemish Way, off the Andersonstown Road.

Cllr Nuala McAllister said: “There can be no place for images of paramilitary gunmen in our society. I am opposed to any mural or image which would seek to glorify terrorism.

“This mural must be replaced. This is not the sort of image that Northern Ireland should be portraying and is counter-productive as we seek to promote a shared future.

“As we attempt to move our society forward, this task is made more difficult by those who seek to demarcate territory through the use of paramilitary murals.”
