Guildhall

Interesting
Derry town hall stands opposite Shipquay Gate. The fine red sandstone Gothic Revival building boasts a clock tower, reminiscent of Big Ben, whose bells ring out the hours in this now quiet town, despite its troubled past. The committee room features symbolist stained glass windows, restored after a bomb wreaked serious damage in 1972. A modern stained-glass window, near the Guildhall entrance, evokes Bloody Sunday.
