Light Up the Famous Murals!

The Bogside Artists’ Call For The Murals To Be Illuminated

Released on: October 22, 2010, 6:22 am

Industry: Entertainment

The Bogside Artists of Derry call on the government to fufill their pledge of seven years ago to light up their murals in the Bogside.

The Bogside Artists have launched an appeal on Google to have their murals lit up. Said Tom Kelly: “What a magnificent sight they would make if they were lit up, especially from the Derry walls overlooking the Bogside. Can you imagine how wonderful that would be? But as the control freaks who represent our community are hell-bent on dumbing down the Bogside and our history, which we have graphically depicted in The People’s Gallery we feel they need a kick to get them started. Seven years ago they publicly stated that money had been allocated for putting lights on the murals. We have waited long enough. It may suit the gamesmanship of political appeasement to see that our history is swept under the carpet and us with it but it does nothing for the locals or the myriad tourists who flock to the Bogside each year to see the muralS. Millions have been poured into marketing the “walled city” nonsense as if Derry, in the rain swept North of Ireland, was the only city in Europe to have medieval walls and all you have to do is sell this idiocy and they will come in their droves over hill and dale from all over the world to see the stone walls. Are these people for real or are they onto a good thing at the taxpayers’ expense? The guys who control tourism in the North of Ireland know full well why people come to Derry. They reserve the Bogside as a sort of peep show instead of what it actually is … one of the most unique art experiences in Europe and has been named as such in many books. They must think they are very clever indeed to have dumbed down the Bogside while milking it of every penny they can get.

Caribbean island, pulling in visitors from all over the world.

Flights operate via Antigua during the winter schedule, departing London Gatwick Tuesdays and Fridays and via Barbados during the new summer schedule, departing Tuesdays and Sundays.
