Bloody Sunday

The third mural by the Bogside Artists (after The Petrol Bomber and Bernadette) is “Bloody Sunday” (painted with Sean Loughrey), painted for the 25th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. It reproduces a famous photograph by Gilles Peress, of local priest Edward Daly waving a blood-stained handkerchief in advance of four men carrying the body of Jackie Duddy. The left-most figure has been changed into a British paratrooper, and he is trampling on a “civil rights” banner similar to one used to cover a body. In the background is an image from earlier in the day, of the civil rights march from Creggan to the Bogside. Rossville Street, Derry
