  • The Bogside murals are truly the figurative narrative of a sad and violent historical period that is remembered as the Troubles. These murals are so named because for the most part they were performed by three artists who lived in those years in the neighborhood. The paintings are strong and arouse multiple sensations. Among the most moving murals are the one dedicated to Annette, the schoolgirl killed at the age of fourteen and that of the first victim of Bloody Sunday. Other murals such as the colorful dove's invite us to think about the future with optimism. Then there are the bloodiest ones that evoke violence and among the latter the boy with the bomb and the gas mask is definitely the most iconic.

  • Very nice Derry and wall art to visit. Derry is a small town but very pretty at the bottom of a fjord. convenient to reach by train

  • We walked down to the Bloody Sunday memorial and the murals are a daunting reminder of what happened here not so long ago.  more »
