The Bog Side

2015-08-24 Bogside+
The eastern side of what was the island of Derry is called the Water side and the western side, although originally under water, became the Bog side in about 1600. The two murals shown here are on either side of the shops adjacent to the Bogside Inn . There is an excellent history of the area from 1162 to the construction of Rossville flats in 1966 at the Museum Of Free Derry.
