The Hunger Strike Era

A lark (or perhaps a dove) bursts through the ceiling of a H-Block cell lined with the names of the ten deceased 1981 hunger strikers. “This mural is dedicated to all those who tragically died on the streets of Derry during the hunger strike era. Suimhneas Dé dá nanamacha. 3rd October 2006.”

Breaking New Ground

A famous photo from the Battle Of The Bogside (included below) shows Bernadette Devlin breaking a piece of pavement. The board above – possibly of two independent halves – has her bringing down the pavement on the issues faced by women in Derry, such as water rates, lone parents, breast cancer support, and smoking cessation.
