Appeal for new Free Derry tourist information and interpretive signs -Duddy

Sinn Féin Councillor Sharon Duddy has called for tourist information and interpretive signs to be replaced after a number of signs in the Bogside have been vandalised.

She said “Several years ago a number of information and interpretive signs were erected in and around the Rossville Street and Free Derry area charting the history of the area and identifying key places of historical interest.

“Some of these signs have seen better days due to the weather but sadly others have been targeted by vandals.

“Graffiti has been written all over them, some the glass has been smashed on them. And it’s hard to believe that others have been set on fire.

“It’s important we try and get these signs replaced and updated as soon as possible.

“The  history of Free Derry is known across the world and more and more visitors are coming to the city to learn about our past.

“I will be in touch with the Council to see what options are available particularly as we head towards the very busy summer period.
