The artist behind Dublin's marriage equality mural is back with a powerful piece for Belfast Pride

Just beautiful.

JOE CASLIN’S George’s Street mural was one of the most iconic images of the Marriage Equality Referendum last year.

The Claddagh Embrace adorned the wall above Rick’s Burger’s just off Dame Street until it was washed off by rain shortly after.

The statement still remains, and now the Roscommon artist has revealed a new mural in Belfast to celebrate the city’s Pride festival.

He wrote on Instagram:

I’ve collaborated with 17 inspiring members of the Belfast LGBTQ community to create a large street art installation and photo series looking at the inclusive LGBTQ family.

Speaking to the BBC, Caslin said he wanted to take his message to Northern Ireland because it’s “the only territory now on the islands of western Europe that doesn’t have same sex marriage”.

Through the work that I did in Dublin last year with the referendum and the large piece we put up on George’s Street, I felt it was an ideal time, coming up to the Pride Festival that takes place this weekend, to reignite that conversation.
