What can one say? Important that there are such places to commemorate the losses experienced by so many as a result of the troubles. And poignant to see how young some of the victims were.

As a child growing up in Australia, our news of the troubles in Northern Ireland was coloured from the English perspective. Visiting Bogside, and in particular the Bloody Sunday Memorial, shines a whole new light on that time in (recent) history. Recommended as a 'must see' to all visitors to Derry.

Together with the Bogside artists, Free Derry Corner and the Free Derry Museum, the memorial is an essential part of understanding the recent history of the city. Essential for all visitors

It makes you stop and reflect on the events that have happened in Northern Ireland and the struggles these people have endured. Although a sad memorial, it makes you hopeful for a better future.

The Bogside is a location where 14 people from that community were murdered by British Paratroopers on what has become known as "Bloody Sunday", tours to The Bogside are excellent and in particular we went on one conducted by Paul Doherty a Son of one of the 14 murdered by The Para's, Paul is simply the best at his job,...

Just an interesting view as you Leave Londonderry, the British loyalist's sector and enter the Irish loyalists sector called 'Derry.' There is a number of murals of Irish freedom fighters and protesters from the 1960's.Odd how you see the British flag on the Londonderry side but the Irish flag one you cross into Derry.
