Visited this as part of the Bloody Sunday tour given by family members of the victims. It was interesting to hear how this is the one mural that changes in town compared to Belfast where the murals change frequently.

Wow, after seen and hearing so much about this, it was lovely to walk around here and get pictures. All in the lovely bogside area, loads of things to see and do within walking distance like the Free Derry Corner, Murals and Free Derry Museum. We did it all ourselfs by foot
