Bits and Bobs
A few more photos from Ireland that I like a lot but didn't seem to fit into another post. Most of these were taken in Northern Ireland. Although the cease fire has been on for fourteen years now, reminders of the Troubles were everywhere, most notably in the murals that are painted all over the walls in the segregated neighborhoods that still exist today. In the Catholic neighborhoods you would see pro-IRA murals and tributes to famous revolutionaries. In the Protestant neighborhoods, you'd see paintings of the Queen and union jacks everywhere. All politics aside, it was refreshing to see splashes of color in a place that can be so gray much of the time.
