The slogan was first written here in 1969 on the end wall of a house and although the houses have now been demolished the end wall has been retained. This would explain its slightly strange location in the middle of a traffic island. As you watch the cars and pedestrians rush by it's difficult to understand its message as clearly... More

When visiting Derry I would definitely recommend seeing Free Derry Corner and don't forget to research into what the wall represents and why it exists!

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.

We just have to learn from our errors in the past and this is a simple reminder of the past of the architecture and reminder of the terraces

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
