The Saturday Matinee

Young people in Derry would spend Saturdays (and many other days) rioting against the British Army presence in the city, which began in August 1969 after the Battle Of The Bogside. Thus, the popular name for this Bogside Artists mural ‘Saturday Matinee’; the official title is The Rioter. The original photograph on which the mural is based, by Clive Limpkin, is included below.
