Description
Loyalist mural, Shankill Parade, Lower Shankill, West Belfast, 2002. Mural commemorates life of Oliver Cromwell, 'Born 1599, Died 1658, Lieutenant General, Lord Protector Defender of the Protestant Faith'. Cromwell is a Protestant hero for his role as staunch defender of the true faith and his conquest of rebellious Catholic Ireland in 1649-1652. Mural shows four of Cromwell's New Model Army (roundheads) putting to death a Catholic (cavalier) rebel. Two side panels read: (left) 'Catholicism is more than a religion[.] It is a political power therefore I[’]m led to believe there will be no peace in Ireland until the Catholic Church is crushed - Oliver Cromwell', and (right) 'Our clergy persecuted and our Protestant churches desecrated[.] Also our Protestant people slaughtered in their thousands - Oliver Cromwell'.
