Derry now in final stages of UK City of Culture bid

Martin McGuinnness’s next engagement after his modest role before the Guildhall on Monday is a wonderful irony  and needs little further comment.  He will have noticed it himself.  So well done, Martin.

    If Derry is successful there will be lots of visitors coming to see the city’s attractions. One of these is a walled ghetto where the cityside’s minority community reside.

    Perhaps cultural representatives from the city’s majority community can put on some of their regular nightime pyrotechnic light shows? I know the shows are spectacular. They’re always gauranteed to bring the ghetto’s residents running out of their homes.

    It’s a very cultural city you know.
