the bloody sunday commemoration (2) mural
The above mural contains portraits of the 14 people who were killed by the British Army on 'Bloody Sunday' in Derry on 30 January 1972. This is the most recent mural and was completed to coincide with the 27th anniversary of the shootings in January 1999. In addition to the portraits, there are also 14 oak leaves with each leaf symbolising one of the victims. Derry takes its name from the Irish word Doire meaning oakgrove.
