This is an extremely iconic and poignant piece of history. When it was first painted it carried a very strong message.

This was part of the Free Derry tour and the explanation on the tour from Glenn Doherty explained the significance of the Corner. Moving to say the least.

Interesting in that the wall is updated (graffiti-ed?) to reflect modern crises. Thought it was bad taste the people who were having their photo taken posing in front of it.
