A short talk on the significance of Francisco Goya’s anti-war painting “The Third of May 1808 in Madrid” (El tres de mayo de 1808 en Madrid) by Eamonn McCann. The talk takes place in reference to a new rendition of Robert Ballagh's 'pop art' version of the painting entitled, "The Third of May – After Goya, 1970″. The new rendition by local artists was tweaked to incorporate the Derry skyline. The talk was part of the Bloody Sunday March Events for 2014.
The setting has poignant resonance with another date. Its the corner of Glenfada Park where just feet away Jim Wray, William McKinney, Gerard McKinney and Gerard Donaghy were shot and fatally wounded on 30th January 1972.
