Walled City Museums

As part of Derry Walls Day 2016, Lorcan Doherty Photography, took some stills of the living history performers in the Walled City Museums. These hint at the rich diversity of stories ’embedded’ in the Derry Walls. Thanks to the performers from Past Pleasures, Claíomh, Footsteps, Blue Eagle and the Playhouse for helping our civic and community museums on Derry Walls Day 2016.
