Still Under Siege

The Fountain is the only Protestant area on the west bank of the Foyle river and it is surrounded by a “peace” line. The original siege of Derry was in 1688.

This is a new location for a message that has been in the Fountain since the 1980s. See previously 1988 and 1990 in Kennedy Place and 2002 | 2004 | 2006 in Hawkin Street.

The War Isn’t Over

These graffiti and small boards are on the fence around Dove Gardens as it is rebuilt. “God bless the Loughgall martyrs” and “Oglaigh na hEireann” and “IRA rule” aim to establish the CIRA and RIRA as simply the IRA. For “Free Colin Duffy” see Freedom Is A State Of Mind.
