It is worth taking a train from Belfast to Derry in order to see these murals. These works of art are real cultural and political heritage.

You really need a thoughtful and informative guide to tour these .... there is no substitute for the stories being told with the touch of Irish humour

This mural tells the story of the 14 people who died on Bloody Sunday. The youngest are in the centre surrounded by the older victims.

As soon as you leave the quaint city walls and walk into Bogside, you're immediately hit by the stark contrast between the two communities of Derry, and the difference in how they're treated by the authorities. Murals commemorate the atrocities of the past, while current...More

The Republican Murals depicting the events on Bloody Sunday are representative of the feelings that some of the people of Derry (and Northern Ireland) share. Obviously the Loyalists might feel differently but the murals do show one perspective of that terrible day in 1972. They...More
