Important memorial for the past, present, and future

This is a very important memorial and well worth the visit to Free Derry. The events that took place here should never be forgotten.

And a speaker was still giving a talk about what happened on SBS. There are memorials to those who died and nearby some houses with letters from the British Foreign Office replying to The residents demands for an apology to deceased love ones who paid the ultimate price for freedom of speech.

A simple but very moving tribute to the victims of "Bloody Sunday" situated at the junction of Rossville Street and Joseph Place. Small and compact memorial with a small information plaque all within a small ironwork fencing enclosure.

Have to see this memorial to understand the history of Derry. Best done if on a Bogside tour led by Paul Dougherty who's father was murdered on Bloody Sunday when Paul just a young boy. Very sad memorial but again a must see while visiting Derry

We came to Derry on a whim, intending to stay for a night. We stayed for the next three, leaving only because we ran out of time. Everything about Derry and surrounds was excellent, all of it worth exploring but the Bloody Sunday Memorial was amongst the most moving. Standing on the city walls looking down into the Bogside, then... More

There is nothing "Good" about this memorial. It is a beautiful, simple and stark reminder of Ireland's dark history of the "Troubles." Pause for prayer and pray for continued peace is the best way to recall this dark Sunday.

The memorial garden is down from the Butcher's Gate at the entrance to the Bogside. It is complemented by the many murals close by, including one which has the faces of every person who died when on this March for civil rights. Even though it's now more than 40 years ago, the memory of Bloody Sunday remains strong and this... More
