Edgarstown original mural

One of the original murals in Edgarstown was of King William III, it was painted on the gable wall of a house in Henry Street, which no longer exists. Unfortunately, due to the areas housing redevelopment in the 1970’s it was demolished and lost.

There are only a handful of murals still remaining in Portadown today. Probably the most eye-catching one can be found in the Edgarstown area. It was finished and unveiled in time for the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, in memorial of the 36th Ulster Division. It depicts a famous painting, a copy of which can be found on display in The Ulster Tower at the Somme.
