Walking around The Bogside, and I admired the work of the Artists. They all had feeling, they all had emotion, they all had reason. Take a walk ~ you will not be disapointed.

The Bogside Murals transcend all sectarian and idealogical conflicts that have afflicted the province since 1968. Definitely worth a stroll to reflect on the history of the area!

We went on a tour of these murals, the stories were very sad, especially since our guide's father was killed during "Bloody Sunday". But, educational and amazing artwork.

The murals depict iconic scenes from the modern history of Derry City. The experience is like walking around an art gallery, except you are outdoors. Great photo opportunity.

Great pieces of social street art no matter what your personal/political views. Powerful images and at times inspiring and thought provoking.
