The Relief Of Londonderry

2013-02-09 ReliefOfDerry+
“Derry” became “Londonderry” in 1613, but in 1689 at the time of the siege, as now, it was commonly referred to as “Derry”. The slogan of the defenders was “No Surrender” and the successful resistance to penetration gave rise to the epithet “The Maiden City” (WP).
Pictures of the unveiling of the plaque in 2009, which commemorates William Love, can be seen here.
