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.

As a visitor to Derry- this memorial did not mean as much to me as it did to the people of Derry. It remembers an unhappy incident in the past. We must come back to the present. The design of the monument is not a thing of great beauty like the mall in London or the Viet Nam memorial in... More

This memorial in itself gave graphic evidence that, if heeded, could have saved the huge cost of the Saville enquiry. The deaths and injuries could not have occurred as in the "official" version of events by virtue of the positions of the fallen.

This memorial is here to remind us of Bloody Sunday. It is free to look at the murals but is well worth paying to have the guided tour of the murals to get some background on them and the area in general as well as the Free Derry Museum afterwards. The Free Derry wall still changes depending on current civil... More

Definitely neat to see with our own eyes and be where the protests and deaths occurred on a historical standpoint. Monument is a simple construction, with the pictures of the victims, and an explanation of what occurred that day. It became more interesting to see after the recent admission of unnecessary use of force by England during the protests that... More

It is very interesting to learn about the history of the place but sad as well. We walked pass all the other murals and it was quite moving. The free-derry museum was closed by the time we reach it which is really a pity. If you are in Derry, you must visit the memorial.

The memorial to the Bloody Sunday massacre is very sad to see. It is a large, almost obelisk-like grave with the names of the 14 dead (13 died that day, and a 14th died due to injuries on Bloody Sunday later). There are flowers and plaques giving a history of the site, and the wounded and dead at the memorial.... More
