One of the most heart warming and unexpected love stories to emerge this Valentine’s Day was that of Willie Frazer getting a tattoo on his forearm of veteran south Armagh Republican Slab Murphy we can reveal.
Frazer known for his contempt of Murphy and south Armagh Republicans had a complete change of heart and had the beautiful tribute to Slab inked at Tattoos By Keato on Lower Catherine Street.
Mr Frazer told Newry Spud:
“I realise that life is short and that Jesus was right when he said ‘Love thy neighbour’ and to ‘Turn the other cheek’ so to that end I got the image of Slab on my forearm just below my UDR tattoo.
I think it is showing a great level of leadership and maturity on my behalf and hopefully it can be reciprocated by the fenian thhrraammppsss of south Armagh.”
