Got this brought to my attention on Saturday, of a new Alex Higgins mural at the side of The Royal Bar in Sandy Row, where he frequented in his later years and across the road from the apartment where he died.
Apologies for the photo quality, as it was hard to get into a good position due to the traffic passing.
It’s a truly excellent and eye-catching mural and well worth checking out.
The more eagle-eyed of you will have noticed a piece of paper beside the mural.
It isn’t actually a note of condolence, but a note informing people that there is still wet paint there.
Interestingly, whilst I was getting photographs of it, locals were approaching me and talking about Alex Higgins in an affecionate way, under the mistaken impression that I was a journalist photographing it for a newspaper.
Meanwhile, the other mural that I had highlighted last week has had a few licks of paint and a tidy up, which is good to see.
