The Friends of the Derry Walls want to recruit 400 new members in time for 2019, the quadricentennial of their completion in 1619. The aim is to demonstrate the widest sense of ownership of and pride in the Derry Walls. A second objective is to raise funds for a major community archaeological dig in 2018. Actor Jamie-Lee O’Donnell (Michelle from Channel 4’s Derry Girls) was in the Guildhall yesterday talking to young people with experience of care as part Care Day 2018, endorsing their achievements and inspiring them to follow their dreams. Also keen to help promote her home city, Jamie-Lee took time to pose in a Friends of the Derry Walls t-shirt. Even Walls need Friends. Thanks Jamie-Lee.
