This is an essential part of the Free Derry area. See my related reviews of the Free Derry Corner, Museum and the Murals.

I recently took friends visiting the city to see the Memorial. It's very understated, very respectful. This story made headlines around the world. Standing in front of the Memorial and reading the names of the innocent victims many cry, say a prayer, spend time in silent contemplation. Every visitor to the city should see this.

Visited as part of a walking tour. Having heard all about The Troubles along the way, ending up at the memorial was a moving experience. The memorial itself is innocuous. It may not necessarily interest the average tourist but if you're visiting Ireland for the first time and happen to be in Derry, worth going by.

We visited this as part of the Bloody Sunday tours given by family members of the victims. It was very moving to visit.

even knowing very little about the civil rights era in Derry, only learning most of what i know about it that day, the memorial made me weep. literally sit down and weep. i love that this city keeps its history alive and honours those who fought to make it fair. it is so moving.

it is a short walk from the center of town, down the bog side. it is a very moving tribute to those people that died on that terrible day. It should be a stop on everybodys trip to Derry

we did the Free Derry tour from Glenfada Park which is almost across the road from the memorial. The tour finished here. I would recommend the tour as well.

Sad to see the reality of how many young people were killed needlessly. Too many 17 year olds died. Heartfelt and overwhelming to stand where Bloody Sunday took place.

Reading the names of the young men who died on Bloody Sunday made for contemplation of how young they were, and how innocent. It was a very sad experience.
