Sniper at Work Sign - the Rest of the Story

Admittedly, this is a very funny picture at first glance.  Like much of life, there is what we see, and what it means however.  While the "Sniper at Work" signs draw our curiosity, especially with the sheep in the background, they point to a time of conflict in Northern Ireland.
