Remembering Jack Clafferty: The legacy of republican art

The creative spirit of republican struggle has been marked in words, song, poetry, and everything else from posters and wall murals to Christmas cards and bodhráns. Jack Clafferty, who died recently, made a unique contribution to the art of resistance and we mark this edition of An Phoblacht by reprinting some of his work. Jack was one of the founders of the Troops Out Movement. His work regularly appeared in their publications, as well as for An Phoblacht, Republican News and Sinn Féin. Some of his work was repurposed for the cover of the third issue of this magazine in 2021.
