Small pocket of resistance
Aug 2020 • Couples
The only loyalist / unionist mural I see while in Derry. For anyone who has in interest in Irish / the troubles history you will recognise the mural straight away from history books / documentaries. It’s worth going up to have a look, on this side of the city only 3% are from a loyalist / Protestant background and it can be clearly seen here in this part of the city. Have a look.

Arresting Sight but Part of History
Apr 2019 • Solo
I saw these murals and slogans from the city wall and learned that The Fountains js one of the few loyalist pockets left in this part of the city.
They as arresting and confrontational like those at Bond Street but to be fair, the nationalist ones on the Bogside, which I loved, could be construed in the same way depending on your outlook.
A fascinating glimpse into the recent social history of the city.

Run down interface area

This is an interface area just outside the city walls, and it is a loyalist stronghold. After Operation Motorman by the British Army, sectarian violence got worse, and peace lines grew in the Fountain area. Today it is a run down area, that I wouldn't imagine is safe to walk after dark. I would not recommend visiting, as there is little to see.

Interesting murals, but not as professional as those in the Bogside
Aug 2014 • Solo
Good contrast in the city's history and culture. Whereas none of the murals in the Bogside seem to glorify one particular organisation (despite what people might believe, there doesn't seem to be a reference to the IRA in any of them, mainly concentrating on civil unrest and civil rights), some of the 'Fountain' paintings do, unfortunately. For example, the UDA.

However, I particularly like the 'Relief of Derry' mural and that commemorating the Somme, 1916. (The former is based on an oil painting of the same name by P.A. Jobson).

The general area has improved considerably over the last three years and it is very safe to walk about.

A different part of derry
Mar 2014 • Solo
In this part of derry, walk side, streetlights and some doors are in union jack colours. Murals are good and beautiful, not like the republicans, but they are good.

Interesting Loyalist History
Apr 2013 • Solo
The Fountain of the Loyalist Murals is a very short tour. You can enter from Bishop Gate, Wapping Lane or New Gate.

From speaking to some the locals living in The Fountain enclave, they stated they are the last loyalist to remain in walled city.
