I visited Derry on a city tour. Made my own way to Freedom Park. Saw the memorials ie murals. The memorial itself. And walked past a home with a letter to and from the Home Office about a relatives death on SBS. All very moving and eery. Respect.

Had a great speaker to explain was happened at the Memorial. Brought tears to my eyes and was a dramatic history lesson on the struggle of the Irish people.

I went a lot 3 or 4 times in this place. Everytime i need to pray for people, young people like me. People that die for freedom. If you know the history, you can't stay without think about it in front of.

Dreadful to think that people had to die in this incident which was simply seeking basic human rights

Very moving murals and memorials. Gave me a true understanding of what the people have been through. Easy walking tour and close to Abbey B&B.

Not to be missed, beautiful monument dedicated to the ones that lost their lives on bloody Sunday. You can spend some time in the Bogside walking around the neighborhood, looking at the murals, the free Derry corner and the memorial. Sad story but the fallen are remembered.

When touring Ireland, don't miss Derry. Profound history occurred there and because of the sacrifices that were made in the name of civil rights, it is a free and peaceful city.

This will bring tears to your eyes and anger to your heart. The story is told in pictures on the walls of the buildings and boards along the way. It is a living memorial to those whose lives are changed forever by the bloodshed of war. Lest we forget.

A sad reminder of things past and a tragedy that should never had happened. Worth seeing combined with a tour of the Bogside and the Free. Derry Museum

For those of us who only heard bits and pieces of the "troubles" this was our first step into truly understanding the conflict and the pain. For those living here, it was a step towards peace and healing. A great, if not somewhat troubling, stop on our trip.
