“Beautiful Mural Depicting Bernadette Devlin”

Republican Murals: Bernadette Devlin
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Viewing the People's Gallery (or Bogside Murals) is a must when visiting Londonderry/Derry. When my wife and I visited in September 2013, one of my favorite murals was the "Bernadette" mural. The mural depicts Bernadette Devlin in front of the Free Derry wall with a crowd of Bogside rioters behind her, and she is addressing people in the Bogside through a bullhorn. By placing Bernadette in the foreground, it feels like Bernadette is speaking to those viewers before the mural.

This mural also uses a little more color than most (more than the black and white "Petrol Bomber" and "Civil Rights" murals), and though not 100% humanly realistic in the bodies (like the previous two murals mentioned), the more-bold colors and larger shapes (the triangle-like Derry Wall and the rioters behind Bernadette) present a bold, dramatic image to the veiwers.

Seeing this later at night with the spot lights shining over it makes the colors of the mural glow in the surrounding blackness of the street.
