These Murals can teach the travelers a lot about the history of the conflict in Northern Ireland. Every mural tells a story of an event that really happened .It is fascinating to get the information about these events.

I think these are best viewed within a Bogside guided tour, They illustrate significant people and events with a story behind the story. Really interesting and guaranteed to send you googling for a week.

Every one of the murals in Derry have a story to tell and the most prominent ones along the Bogside are no different. They are beautiful and heartbreaking - and even better with a guide that will tell you their tales from a personal perspective....More
