Heroes With Their Hand In The Air

Heroes With Their Hands In The Air is a play by Fintan Brady based on Eamonn McCann’s “The Bloody Sunday Inquiry: The Families Speak Out” (BelTel). After playing Derry’s Playhouse it will move to An Chultúrlann in Belfast (promo video).

The black ribbon (on the left) is used to symbolise the victims of Bloody Sunday – see the 1997 and 1998 images of the front of Free Derry Corner.

“The 40th anniversary for Bloody Sunday” on the rear of Free Derry Corner.

1st Battalion Doire Brigade

This is a new version of the Derry brigade board in Westland Street – everything remains as before (see 2010) except for a new picture of the dolmen memorial in Lecky Road.

The scroll in the bottom right reads “I gcuimhne dhíl orthu siud a fuair bás ar son saoirse na hÉireann – In fond & loving memory of those who died in the cause for Ireland’s freedom”.
