This is the last remaining tower of the old Derry Jail which was built in 1791 and demolished in the 1970s. The jail housed a long list of notable inmates including Wolf Tone, leader of the United Irishmen, and Eamon de Valera, later to be President of Ireland. It is now used as a Heritage Centre and houses artifacts from WWI up to the present day.

Curious Ireland images make interesting wall art, meaningful wedding presents or simply a thoughtful gift for someone who is living far away.……If you prefer COLOUR CLICK HERE or B&W CLICK HERE. (beautifully printed & packaged by the Irish Photo Archive)
