Prepresntatives of 28 walled towns across Europe to visit Donegal as part of Derry symposium

© TJG182Representatives of 28 walled towns from all over Europe are in Derry for the next four days to take part in a symposium on the economic and cultural value of heritage.
The European Walled Towns Association was last in Derry in August 1993, when its visit was used  to accelerate the reopening of the walks around the top of the City Walls, having  been closed for security reasons for several years.
The delegates will be addressed by tourism and heritage Ministers from both sides of the border, and as part of a wider discussion of heritage towns, will visit Raphoe in Donegal.
Symposium organiser Mark Lusby says walled towns have a unique character, and that’s particularly true about Derry’s walls:
