I remember some news reports on TV of this event in 1972 when I was a child. If you are going to walk the murals, stop here and see the memorial. There is a descriptive plaque to read in case you're not familiar with what happened. There is still a damp, dismal, haunting air of tragedy, sadness and even hatred... More

The monument is quite small really and you could miss it. There is a plaque telling the story of the massacre. The manes are engraved on the munument. You should visit this!

While the memorial obviously pays tribute to those killed on Bloody Sunday, it also allows visitors to see the event as part of the history of conflict in Ireland.

I must say if your ever in Ireland this place is a must stop. Not knowing much about it, I was amazed with the background and the history behind Bloody Sunday.

Bloody Sunday, also called the Bogside Massacre, is far from the only violent episode of the troubled history of Northern Ireland. If this day is passed on to posterity, it is because it has major political implications: it has directly influenced the consequences of the conflict in Northern Ireland. This event has encouraged many young Catholics to take up arms... More

We visited with a local friend who was an amazing guide. All the history was very intense! Depends on which side you are on (I'm neither Irish or British) could be a completely different story to hear. I'm very grateful to learn about the history and indeed an intense one!

This was a small and simple memorial but very touching. We walked the area and viewed all the murals on the buildings. Growing up and hearing on the news of the turmoils in the 1980s helped us to truly appreciate the monument and the area. We are truly glad of the progress made towards a peaceful Ireland.
