Although there is nothing much happening at Free Derry Corner the gable end of the house with the writing on it will make you pause and think about the past and be inspired about the changes that have happened in Derry in recent years. A poignant reminder.

It was hard to find parking by the corner to take a picture. As an American it was troubling to see them so proudly supporting groups like the PLO that the US has recognized as terrorists.

Walking into Derry, you will be greeted by FREE DERRY painted on a white building. It will inspire you to say a prayer for the people's quest for freedom and justice, Will never forget this!

A piece of Irish history. Sad place to visit and remember, but also a place to feel proud for those that stood up and fought for their rights.

This is an extremely iconic and poignant piece of history. When it was first painted it carried a very strong message. It should remain with the same black letters on the white background but unfortunately it's now used as a billboard for any political message and cause that takes the fancy of whoever controls it. Such a shame to cheapen... More

This essentially "marks the spot" of a critical event of the early civil rights movement. A visit to the nearby Free Derry Museum provides critical context to why it was constructed in the first place. Even if you think you know about the conflict, you will appreciate the museum.

Not just the free Derry corner but the whole of the bogside has so much history and it's both heartbreaking and heart warming to see what these people have been through and also what they have managed to build and still triumph.
