    Good people of Belfast, I would like to congratulate you on a great exhibition of never forgotten comrades. I would like to know if i can buy a print of the new Kieran Nugent mural because i admired the Blanket Men. Kieran Nugent was my first cousin, his Father Micheal John was my Mothers Brother from Crossmaglen,i am disabled and cant get down to see it or get a photo taken beside it.Plz will you email me back, as i cant get it on my Facebook and would buy some prints. Very nice work good Republicans of Belfast.
