The Friends of the Derry Walls have welcomed the news that both James Nesbitt and Derry’s historic Walls have been named as Northern Ireland’s ‘National Treasures,’ following an online poll to celebrate 20 years of the National Lottery.
Speaking on behalf of the Friends, Coordinator, Mark Lusby thanked the public in Derry, across Northern Ireland and from around the world who voted for the Derry Walls: “It is always a struggle to convince public agencies that the Derry Walls need investment on a scale similar to that being invested in heritage and cultural tourism attractions in other areas of Northern Ireland so this popular vote is especially welcome. The Derry Walls can make a much greater contribution to the economic and social well-being of Derry if we all had higher expectations for their protection and development than is currently the case. The association of a personality as James Nesbitt with the Derry Walls is also a welcome boost to the brand image of the Walls and the Friends would like to see this relationship continue into the future.”
