55 great photos from the Derry Journal archive of May 1974

We’re rewinding back to 50 years ago in Derry and the wider north west here to May 1974, when the Ulster Workers’ Strike saw the British army take over fuel depots and petrol stations during the Ulster Workers’ Strike. Essex factory workers and nurses were also on strike locally, while Bishop of Derry Edward Daly was being honoured just three months into his post.

Please note – these photos like our stories are the work of generations of Derry Journal staff and are owned by the Derry Journal. They must not be downloaded, colourised or otherwise edited and re-uploaded elsewhere without the written permission of the Editor.
