Mural of journalist Lyra McKee unveiled in Belfast

in memory

A mural of the journalist Lyra McKee, who was shot dead in Derry last month, has been unveiled in her home city of Belfast.

The image, created by Emma Blake and 21 other artists, covers much of the city’s Kent Street as part of the Hit the North street art festival.

The picture is painted alongside the words from a letter McKee wrote to her 14-year-old self. The letter, shared worldwide since her death, spoke of her struggles as a gay teenager in Northern Ireland. It contained the touching message: “It won’t always be like this. It’s going to get better.”
