Free Derry Corner – Rear

****On-Going Project – Please send any corrections, additions, and photos to extramuralactivity@gmail.com ****

The first recorded version of the back or “inside” of Free Derry Corner is an Irish-language version of the slogan on the front – “Anois Tá Tú Ag Dul Isteac I Saor Doire” – in 1983.
