You are entering Free Derry monument

Free Derry Corner sign

Its been over 50 years since the civil uprising in Derry’s Bogside district (Northern Ireland). The free derry corner has been a symbol of civil rights to the events of Bloody Sunday.

A teenager, Liam Hillen, painted “You are now entering FREE DERRY” across the housing sidewall on one of the many derelict houses in the Bogside district.

The black lettering on a white wall, as in this photograph, is what remains today. The words “You are now entering free Derry” are inscribed in the monument.  The writing is repainted professionally by John Casey. The monument and its saying are now internationally recognized as a symbol of civil rights resistance worldwide.
