The artists have created thought provoking artwork that cannot help move you. IOt also makes you question your knowledge and emotions regarding the issues of this town.

Hearing the stories of this trying time in Ireland's history was brought out in these murals. It would be hard to live here and go by them w/o remembering these bad times.

Each mural tells a story and they stories that are an important part of this cities history. Quite confronting in many ways and just brings it home that there are several parts to the conflicts that wracked this area over many years.

Some stunning murals on buildings depict the past and hope for peace in the future. Worth a walking stroll along that street.

Quite remarkable how the people have used their art to tell their story and support their position. It's easy to spend quite some time wandering around the many pieces of art.

Felt a little uneasy wandering the Bogside and viewing the murals: a bit like I wast intruding. The murals are excellent pieces depicting vividly recent history, even though the events portrayed are very sad. Hopefully they will forever remind us of past times and events...More
