The latest edition of the popular community magazine ‘Waterside Voices’ celebrates the magazine’s 21st birthday, and as usual it is packed full of articles for all to enjoy. In ‘An Appreciation’ Charlie McDaid pays tribute to the longevity of the magazine while Raymond Robinson remembers happy days growing up in Moore Street and John Lynch writes about Eglinton man and renowned tobacco baron, Thomas Gallaher. John McCormack tells how some of the Waterside’s famous streets got their names in ‘A Street View of the old Waterside’ and there’s a special pictorial feature recapturing Derry’s City FC’s golden days of the 1960s, featuring photographs taken by the late Dan Watson.

The magazine is on sale at newsagents in the greater Waterside area and across the city.
