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

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.
