Anne Devlin, housekeeper and close friend of Robert Emmet, was commemorated yesterday with the painting of a mural in the Liberties area by Dublin street artist Maser. We interviewed Maser here on the site in January, and were lucky enough to get some great shots of him painting this fine tribute to an often forgotten republican, who refused to speak or inform on others despite torture and ill-treatment.
Cheers to Maser as ever for his support of the blog and allowing us to get these snaps of a work in progress, and cheers to Luke Fallon for taking the pictures.
The finished mural can be seen over on the Liberties Festival Facebook page.
