NOSTALGIA: Derry and Inishowen in pictures - April 1997
In April 1997 Foyle Search and Rescue unveiled ambitious plans to expand its operations amid growing fears that its long-term future could be in jeopardy due to a lack of funding; recently-crowned Premier Division champions, Derry City, were clearly still recovering from their weekend celebrations when they entertained Inter-Toto Cup challengers Cork City at the Brandywell; and representatives of a mining company which planned to excavate precious metals in Inishowen stated that they were ‘astounded’ by the results of tests carried out in Australia of samples sent from Donegal.
