There are several murals in the area depicting different snapshots of Irish history. These works of art, which are very well kept up, are beautiful, but also very sobering because they share glimpses of some very troubled times. These murals are a definite must-see and...More

THere are numerous murals and paintings on the sides of buildings depicting the tragedies of Derry. This area is very moving and reminds us that peace is fragile.

We took in the murals in the Bogside as part of our tour with Derry Guided Tours. It was great to have a local telling us about the people behind the murals

Every Mural has it's own story to tell, what a tragic place this "Bogside" the Paratroopers have still so much to answer for and certainly the Powers in Westminister have so much to answer for.

The murals tell a story and the best way to get that story is by the Mural artists. Check out their walking tour if you can.

The real haunting aspect of this and other murals here is their strange and terrible familiarity. I have seen similar work all over the world from Vietnam to Australia, from China to France. Why is it that the face of violence becomes the image of...More
