Demolition of Tom Kelly flats, Charlemont Street, Dublin 2 in 1994

Tom Kelly writes:

I understand that once upon a time, there was a Mural, (Subject: Tom Kelly) that was located in the Tom Kelly Flats near Kelly’s Corner in Dublin.

Would you or any of your readers have any suggestions as to where I could see a picture of this?

I understand that the Flats have now been demolished. Thank you very much for your assistance.

Anyone?

    The flats on Charlemont street were demolished in the past few years not 1994 as the article states.
    Lived on Tom Kelly road until 1987 and I remember a mural painted on the side of French Mullen flats. I always thought it was a mural of James Connolly not Tom Kelly as the subject states. Connolly lived in Charlemont street for while. There is a picture of this mural on the Charlemont street photography Facebook page. The picture itself is of 2 ladies standing in the foreground but you can see this mural in the background.
