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.

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.

The bloody Sunday memorial, bogside artists and a visit to the museum of Free Derry is something you should do visiting Derry.

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.
