One of the many plaques on the walls
Canons - obvious really isn't it? From every place on the walls.
Fencing still remains at this part of the wall protecting the houses on the bogside from attack by launched objects lobbed from the wall during the orange marches and vice versa protecting marchers from objects thrown from the bogside.
There is rumour that these gates may be removed in the near future - they were there to prevent people walking the walls.
Very sad - peering out from this section of the wall are a section of the population, protestants, who are building a bonfire to celebrate the defeat of the Irish catholics in 1689.
Peering out from another section of the wall is the bogside, where murals depict the British occupation of Derry.
I went to take a closer look at the murals. They are quite amazing, illustrating the bloody history of the city during british occupation.
Painted in 1969, after the battle of the bogside
Bloody Sunday, otherwise known as the bogside massacre
A mural in Derry called "The Death of Innocence", depicting Annette McGavigan,
a schoolgirl killed in the city during the early years of the Troubles
Loads of other murals in Ireland, especially at pubs - I was so surprised but glad to see that none had been defaced. Back home I'd sure they'd have horns or moustaches painted on!
the peace bridge
Northern Ireland is doing so much to promote peace, I wish Derry and Northern Ireland the best of peace for the future. There is so much history and so much beauty too.
