PIC: Somebody has updated the iconic 'You Are Now Entering Free Derry' mural

The iconic Free Derry Corner mural in the Bogside area of Derry has once again been updated, this time to include a quote by 1916 leader James Connolly.

The quote by Connolly, who was one of the seven signatories of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, reads: "The British government has no right in Ireland, never had any right in Ireland, never can have any right in Ireland."

The quote now stands beneath the phrase 'You Are Now Entering Free Derry', which has been printed on the free-standing gable wall since 1969 after it was first painted by John Casey.

Here's how the famous mural looks now:
