"What About Ye Mucker?" Derry by laurentka

Derry Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 27 photos

My city of choice. I moved here at the start of 1996. A great city to live in and visit. A great base to discover the North-West of Ireland and the Antrim coast.

Don't be put off coming here on holidays by all the bad press Northern Ireland gets. Unfortunately they always only show the negative news on telly, and never the good stuff of which there's plenty! We're getting there, slowly but surely ;o)

The picture you see here on the left is Shipquay Street with the Guildhall just outside one of the seven gates. And if you're wondering about the greeting at the top of the page, it's the warm local way to greet a friend ;o)

If you want more information and pictures on the troubles from 1968-present then I highly recommend 'CAIN Web Service' (Conflict Archive on the INternet) which you find at http://cain.ulst.ac.uk/index.html

    Hehe... the joke about Paddy Doherty is like the recent Canadian beer commercial where an American asks a Canadian, "Do you know Glen from Canada? He works in an office" Hehe... ;) Good page on Derry! I shall visit whenever I get to Ireland!

    i find the derry accent incomprehesible most of the time, though i've never been there. the softer Derry accent is really nice though
