Last night the net was awash with rumors and pictures of what looked like a Banksy piece on Moore St.
Freda Mullin Hughes popped down and sent us in this:
“I went up to photograph the “Banksy” piece on Moore Street on my lunch break today and met Nurse Elizabeth O’Farrell’s grand-niece Donna so I asked her to pose with a picture of Elizabeth who has been too often airbrushed out of history and this picture. Elizabeth was present with Pearse at the surrender and featured in the original photograph of the event. However, she has since been airbrushed out of the image which is in common usage.”
If you haven’t heard about the airbrushing of women from the history of 1916 give this guest blog at the Women’s Museum of Ireland a read.
Meanwhile, Banksy has only gone and ruined the fun. Sake.
We doff our hat to the prankster par excellence behind this.
