OUT NOW | 'Derry Journal: the 1960s - A Decade in Focus' (Compiled by Sean McLaughlin)
Derry in the 1960s was a city brimming with ambition and potential. Change, for the better, was apparent everywhere - in sport, music and, of course, in politics. Derry was looking to the future.
However, it was also a city hurtling towards catastrophe. By the end of the 1960s, the lid had blown on a rage that had been simmering for years. A city that had started the decade full of hope ended it on the verge of civil war. 'Derry Journal: the 1960s - A Decade in Focus' - a new photographic compilation from the archives of Ireland's second oldest newspaper - tells the extraordinary story of a place and its people in the years leading up to the outbreak of the Troubles.
It is a fascinating, evocative, poignant and emotional journey through our past. A wonderful snapshot of times gone by.
