Bogside Murals - Bernadette Devlin
The large gable-wall murals by the Bogside Artists LinkExternal link , Free Derry Corner LinkExternal link and the Gasyard Féile (an annual music and arts festival held in a former gasyard) are popular tourist attractions. This mural depicts some scenes from the 'Battle of the Bogside' which took place in August 1969 LinkExternal link . The mural depicts Bernadette McAliskey (Devlin at the time LinkExternal link ) addressing the crowds on the streets of the Bogside. She later received a prison sentence for taking part in, and inciting, a riot. She served as Member of Parliament for Mid Ulster from 1969 to 1974. At the time of her election, at the age of 21, she was the youngest ever MP and she remained the youngest woman ever elected to Westminster until the May 2015 general election when 20-year-old Mhairi Black, representing the Scottish National Party, broke Devlin's record.

The mural was painted in 1996.
