A simple but very moving tribute to the victims of "Bloody Sunday" situated at the junction of Rossville Street and Joseph Place. Small and compact memorial with a small information plaque all within a small ironwork fencing enclosure.

Have to see this memorial to understand the history of Derry. Best done if on a Bogside tour led by Paul Dougherty who's father was murdered on Bloody Sunday when Paul just a young boy. Very sad memorial but again a must see while visiting Derry

We came to Derry on a whim, intending to stay for a night. We stayed for the next three, leaving only because we ran out of time. Everything about Derry and surrounds was excellent, all of it worth exploring but the Bloody Sunday Memorial was amongst the most moving. Standing on the city walls looking down into the Bogside, then... More

Saw the Bloody Sunday Memorial with a tour guide. Got the history of Bloody Sunday and really got the feel about the significance of Bloody Sunday from the tour guide. A must see if you are ever in Derry.

There is nothing "Good" about this memorial. It is a beautiful, simple and stark reminder of Ireland's dark history of the "Troubles." Pause for prayer and pray for continued peace is the best way to recall this dark Sunday.

The memorial garden is down from the Butcher's Gate at the entrance to the Bogside. It is complemented by the many murals close by, including one which has the faces of every person who died when on this March for civil rights. Even though it's now more than 40 years ago, the memory of Bloody Sunday remains strong and this... More

It was a sad day in 1972, but the City of Derry has understood that Bloody Sunday is part of its history. The Memorial in Bogside recognizes that, as it pays tribute to all who died in the struggle, or as they call it, "The Troubles".
