History Trip Derry

Sixth Year History Trip photo album

55 History students in 6th year recently visited the Free Derry Museum and partook in a walking tour of the Bogside with their teachers - Mr. Colm Doherty, Ms. Majella Doherty and Ms. Marie Mc Laughlin. They learned about the unfolding of events of Bloody Sunday by locals who witnessed events on that fateful day in 1972. They also visited the Siege Museum and the Apprentice Boys Hall. Visits to both museums gave the group a greater understanding of the need of the Civil Rights Movement and the Apprentice Boys to commemorate their religious and cultural identity. It was an informative day and will help greatly with the pupils' study of the politics and society of Northern Ireland.
