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.

The murals are a fascinating, if very sobering reminder of the troubles in Northern Ireland until very recently. They are grim evidence of just how deep feelings went on both sides of the equation. They are a must see while in Derry/Londonderry.

Just one of the many thought provoking murals in the Bogside. All are worth viewing. Take the time to view them. Each one tells a story.

The story and the painting is so poignant. Afterwards, go up to the hill opposite, next to the holy well, and take in the whole mural.
