Peace Park in the Dark – Duddy

Sinn Féin Councillor Sharon Duddy commenting after complaints from city centre workers that all the lights in the Peace Park on Foyle Street are not working.

She said “I was contacted at the weekend by someone who works in the city centre concerned that all the lights in the Peace Park are currently out.

“They have told me all six lights in the park are not working, in fact the only light in the park working is the Peace Flame.

“This is a very busy park with workers  using the adjacent car park or commuters simply going to the bus depot on Foyle Street.

“People are passing through  it  early in the morning or going home late at night from socialising or shopping  in the city.

“So it’s very important as we head into the winter months that these lights are repaired.
