Derry: The Walled City

Derry is a walled city that lies near the River Foyle. The walls were built between 1614 and 1619. They have survuved almost intact. They are about 8 metres high, and 9 metres wide. We were able to walk around the entire walls which was about 1.5kilmoteres long.

Along the walls were plenty of cannons.

There are 6 main gates into the town.

The Bogside Murals are similar to the murals in Belfast. As with the murals in Belfast, I will just provide links if you require further information to the murals.

This is "Death of Innocence"

This is "Bernadette"

This is "Operation Motorman"
