Mickey Devine's Wake, Londonderry, Northern Ireland, 1981 - Mickey Devine was the last of ten IRA hunger strikers to die in the Maze, known as "Long Kesh," a British prison outside Belfast. It is a terrible death. In the room adjacent to where his body lay, mourners gathered for tea and sandwhiches. Masked Irish Republican Army soldiers stood guard, while two hundred yards down the road were British army patrols.
