The Bloody Sunday Memorial on Rossville street in The Bogside, a neighborhood outside the city walls of Derry, Northern Ireland. The area has been a focus point for many of the events of "The Troubles", from the Battle of the Bogside and Bloody Sunday in the 1960s and 1970s.
Bloody Sunday was an incident on January 30, 1972 in the Bogside neighborhood of Derry, Northern Ireland, in which 26 unarmed civil-rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army. Thirteen males, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four-and-a-half months later was attributed to the injuries he received on that day.
The Troubles was a period of ethno-political conflict in Northern Ireland which spilled over at various times into England, the Republic of Ireland, and mainland Europe. The duration of the Troubles is conventionally dated from the late 1960s and considered by many to have ended with the Belfast "Good Friday" Agreement of 1998.
