Moving Tribute

A moving tribute to those killed in the massacre. It was moving to see fresh flowers at the memorial - they had not been forgotten.

Let us not forget that the RUC murdered 17 and wounded 15 people because the were marching and seeking equal rights.took the British government 40 years to apologise. Sad to think that this happened only 40 years ago.

I spent a lot of time here, talking with locals and trying to gain a good understanding of the history here. I left feeling grateful that I learned and sad that I ever needed to.

While on a bus tour of Derry we were given the history of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland. The driver took us by the place where Bloody Sunday transpired and related the story behind this tragic event. Freedom is costly and this memorial gives testimony to that.

Once again, a must for all visitors to Derry/Londonderry, no matter what your religion or culture. An open mind is required on this historic tragedy and a balanced attitude. Wrongs committed on all sides, and none can lay claim innocence. Its all about lessons learnt so as not to repeat history

I had to see all this: the memorial, the murals, the placards accompanying the murals, and the memorial museum. All in all it took me about 3-4 hours to walk and see everything. You must see all this when in Derry; though not a particularly pleasant piece of its history, it is important that people know about it, and never... More
