N.Ireland Troubles. Road To Power Sharing.
Give Us 5. 1994.
Gerry Gleason.
acrylic on canvas

Give Us 5 deals with the idea that sometimes when people are trying to negotiate a deal they want
100 percent while in the end a realistic percentage seems to be more achievable.At that time both groups
appeared to have their own percentage in mind. The negotiations slowly moved towards a more achievable
solution.The painting contains 3500+ for lives lost and innumerable injuries that the troubles cost
to the whole community
