Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy commenting on the news that the Communities Minister Ní Chuilín has announced that design work is to get underway on a new public realm scheme for Harbour Square in Derry that will also incorporate new artwork celebrating factory workers.
Sandra Duffy said “I very much welcome news of this investment in the public realm in our city centre and at the same time remembering the factory workers.
“We have seen in recent years the positive impact these realm schemes have had in the likes of the Guildhall Square and Waterloo Place.
“I am delighted also that the factory workers’ legacy will be incorporated in new artwork. It’s important to recognise the role of the thousands of Derry men and women who were the backbone of our economy for decades.
