A new 'Muriel' on the Shankill pays tribute to the OWC World Cup squads of 1958, '82 and '86, and last year's Euros team


Northern Ireland legend Billy Hamilton and Margaret Marley of the NIHE who funded the new mural at Battenburg Street in the Shankill

Legendary forward Billy Hamilton, who graced successive World Cup finals in Spain (82) and Mexico (86), helped unveil the special mural last night.

1st Shankill NISC secretary Roy Martin said: "It was great that Billy could be here to unveil the mural.

"The Northern Ireland teams that qualified for the three World Cups in Sweden, Spain and Mexico, and the team that reached last year's Euros, are all legendary.

Another football mural worth a mention is the 'suicide awareness' one in the woodvale area...



Fifteen clubs, mainly from the Greater Shankill area, are featured on the mural in Woodvale which is supported by a range of agencies.

They are all part of Suicide Awareness and Mental Health Initiative (SAMHI), a group set up following the deaths of a number of young men in north and west Belfast last year.

"When we set up SAMHI, it was on the back of three deaths in local football, two in the Greater Shankill area and one from the Falls area of west Belfast, all young footballers," he said.

Excellent to see public art with out the need for woolly faces...

"between the bridges" interest in aspects of Ulster Scot trash culture is mildly intriguing.

O'Neill should be ashamed of himself, WTF would have anything to do with a sectarian pub team who sing the Billy Boys in support of these losers?

Its a job. Nothing wrong with taking the job.


Totally agree sir, but who would do it given their infamous history, especially in their disdain for Catholics who don't agree with their behaviour towards Catholic players and supporters.

In the workplace ffs would you accept flegs and renditions of the billyboys in your face?

Some positive stuff there. The suicide rate in North and West Belfast, on both sides on the community, is getting to pandemic levels. I read the free Shankill newspaper and can see that mental ill health, especially amongst men in the 18 - 45 age group is as big a problem there as on the Falls and Ardoyne, New Lodge etc.

Synonymous in areas across the World in post conflict situations, I read an article some years ago on this by a NYC psychologist who studied a lot of that depressing stuff sir.
