1. Bernadette Marker
Inscription. The Artists' first coloured mural is a tribute to the women of Derry and their role in the civil rights campaign. Bernadette Devlin, Britain's youngest MP, addresses the crowd during the Battle of the Bogside: her actions resulted in a six month jail sentence for inciting and taking part in a riot. The woman to her left bangs a dustbin lid on the ground to alert neighbours to the arrival of the authorities. The triangle motif inspired by the gable end is repeated throughout the painting.

Our job is to do justice to our history and the price people have paid for their democratic rights. That's what we are about.
 
Erected 1996 by The Bogside Artists.
