OF TIMES GONE BY: Derry and Inishowen in pictures - July 1996

In July 1996 the SDLP gave notice it intended putting forward a motion of no confidence in Derry’s Mayor Richard Dallas, who took part in loyalist street protests; history was made with the building of the first ‘Drontheim’ boat in more than forty years at McDonald’s Boatbuilders in Moville; and the bodies of 400 people who died locally during the Great Famine of 1845-50 were finally laid to rest during an inter-denominational service in Derry. As ever, the ‘Journal’ photographers were out and about.
