Londonderry


Derry or officially Londonderry, the walled city, is the second largest city in Northern Ireland. The River Foyle separates both sides of the city with the old walled city being on the West Bank.


Londonderry is always referred to as Derry by nationalists. Known as the Maiden City by virtue of the fact that its walls were never breached. There is a vibrant business community and two busy shopping mall. The city has a host of independent traders and a thriving craft industry. 


The nearby Derry Airport at Eglinton has brought a much needed boost to local tourism for the region.
