DescriptionRepublican mural, New Lodge Road, New Lodge, Belfast, 1997. Portraits and quotations of Mary Ann and Henry Joy McCracken, sister and brother. He was an activist in the United Irish Movement and was executed in 1798; she was a social and political reformer, campaigning for women's rights and the abolition of slavery. 'What a wonderful clamour is now raised at the name of union, when in reality there has always been such a union between England and this country. As there is between husband and wife by which the former has the power to oppress the later'. Henry Joy McCracken, 'These are times that try men's souls…the rich always betray the poor'.
