The Bogside

2013-03-07 Bogside+
The Bogside Artists’ ‘The Death Of Innocence’ at the bottom of Westland Street in London-/Derry/Doire. The mural features Annette McGavigan, who died on September 6th, 1971, at age 14, shot by a British Army soldier. The mural is three storeys high; its height can be judged in comparison with the pedestrian walking below it. Above the mural, the streets of the bogside stand row upon row.
In the video below, one of the artists, Kevin Hasson discusses the mural, including the later alterations to the coloured butterfly and the broken rifle. The original rendition can be seen here.
