Was out this morning walking along the Lagan Towpath, and stumbled upon some excellent graffiti in an abandoned house, not far from the Lock Keeper’s Inn, the cafe which is used as a shining example of Castlereagh Borough Council’s excellent ‘Grants For Young Entrepreneurs Programme’, supported by Iris Robinson.

I’d always noticed the graffiti from afar, but never really knew how to get access to it. What I saw was pretty basic, but my curiousity got the better of me, and I checked out the abandoned building nearby, and saw some fantastic pieces of art, which are sadly hidden away from the general public.

The one that put a smile on my face was a drawing of Slimer from Ghostbusters.

Apologies for the poor picture quality. What looked good on my camerascreen didn’t really translate when I uploaded it onto the computer.

Another piece that was eyecatching was one title ‘Joker‘, the second of which is in Belfast.

That’s two pieces of graffiti in Belfast, and Batman has done nothing about it.

Incidentally, the other photo is on my Flickr account.

The two best ones are an image of Betty Boo and one titled ‘The Most Nasty

Due to the location of the building, not far away from Newforge Country Club, it does make me laugh at the thought of such acts of vandalism taking place not far from where loads of peelers hang out.
