Cromwell in Ireland - a loyalist perspective
 
Loyalist mural celebrating the arrival of Cromwell in Ireland
Shankill Parade, Shankill, Belfast, 2002                                                             pdf version
'Oliver Cromwell Born 1599, Died 1658'
Portrait of Oliver Cromwell surrounded by ‘Lieutenant General Lord Protector of the Protestant Faith’.
Mural shows 5 figures and two horses and two text panels.
Left hand text panel:
‘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.’
Right hand text panel:
‘Our Clergy persecuted and our Protestant churches desecrated. Also our Protestant people slaughtered in their thousands - Oliver Cromwell.’

'To Hell, or Connaught'

At the sight of the poor and barren province, even one of Cromwell's own generals

observed that there was

'neither water enough to drown a man, nor a tree to hang him, nor soil enough to bury him.'
