The Derry Journal reports on Tim Pat Coogan’s speech at a Féile event in Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, Derry…
The author and historian said that community movements have driven changes in Derry and those changes have shaped modern Ireland.
“The word which will govern what we succeed in is a word which epitomises Derry – that word is community. It is the ability to hold what you have and try for what you want.”
“Even in the midst of everything that is happening today, that spirit can still be seen looking around Derry today,” he said.
