A Love Letter to Derry
We take a little bit of a detour from food this week and turn our spotlight on the walled city of Derry in the north of Ireland. Perhaps best known around the world for being the site of the Bloody Sunday massacre in 1972, Derry has come a long way over the past 50 years to become a model for peace and reconciliation.
On today’s episode, we speak with Paul Doherty, owner of Bogside History Tours and a founding member of the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign, and Ciara O’Connor Pozzo, from the Museum of Free Derry. We discuss the impact of Bloody Sunday and how much the city has changed since then, problems with the concept of “dark tourism,” and the gift that is Lisa McGee’s Derry Girls TV show.
