Bhíomar thuas i nDoire dé Luain agus chonaiceamar an droichead nua.  Is droichead álainn í a cheangalaíonn an Waterside leis an chuid eile den chathair agus tá súil ag cách go gcuideoidh sé le cairdeas a mhúscailt i measc muintir na cathrach.

We walked across the new Peace Bridge in Derry this week and it was a wonderful feeling.  The bridge was opened officially at the weekend with great celebrations and it is hoped that it will give a boost to the city and ‘literally’ bring the two communities closer together.  Fionnuala took the photo above.  It’s a beautiful curved pedestrian bridge that winds its way across the Foyle river, linking the Waterside to the cityside.
