I was a visitor to Derry in the very worst of the troubles. Everyone was so lovely to me and my traveling companion that we didn't grasp the gravity of the situation. Must be a culture of hospitality and kindness. I'm sure it's even nicer now that the trouble are largely over.--Beenthere 00:57, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
Is the official name of this town Derry or Londonderry? On the maps I have seen it is down as "Londonderry (Derry)". Any Northern Irishmen available to elaborate? Sjc196 09:57, 10 Aug 2004 (EDT)
republicans know it as derry , loyalists know it as londonderry and it will be like this for a long time, im from derry/l'derry , whatever you call it
In the "Buy" section, I have changed "in the British Isles" to "in the UK or Ireland". the former is too politically loaded and offensive from a Republican point of view.
"hotbed of criminality"
took this out because while I wouldn't necessarily advise foreigners not with locals to wander aimlessly round the 'Bog or the Creggan (or indeed the Fountain) at night, "hotbed of criminality" was a bit strong... drink fuelled agression fairly well covers the topic I think. maybe a reference about being careful round interface areas (places where different communities are beside each other)
