The Saturday Matinee

The mural is so called because young people in Derry would spend Saturdays (and many other days) rioting against the British Army, which had been deployed in August 1969 after the Battle Of The Bogside. This is the eighth mural from the Bogside Artists in The People’s Gallery. The original photograph on which the mural is based, by Clive Limpkin, is included below. Rossville Street, Derry. Replaces Nothing Has Changed.
