The latest addition to Derry's wall art is a mural of the Dalai Lama pictured with the man he calls the Derry Lama - local man Richard Moore. Richard's story is so incredible that as they say in Derry - you couldn't make it up. Blinded by a soldier's bullet on his way home from school aged 10, Richard has gone on to befriend and ultimately forgive the man who shot him. Almost 50 years and a whole lot of living later he declares himself a Derry Girl and joins Pauline, Jeanie and Marie Louise to talk about the ways in which that fateful day has changed him and how the Derry sense of humour has pervaded his life.

Talking Derry Girls

Fancy a bit of craic?! Jeanie, Marie-Louise and Pauline love the Channel 4 sit-com, Derry Girls, based in their home city. We thought it would be fun to rewatch the series, and chat about each episode in detail. You don’t have to be from Derry or even a girl. Being a Derry Girl is a state of mind. Come on in!
