Hoo... Snap. Knew I forgot something. Sorry 'bout bailing on that there. Mini text version right he-uh, even if the wiki pretty much explains it all...

Doire/Derry/Londonderry/The Maiden City.

Lotsa arguments about that, but during the "troublings" and a wee bit afterwards, it was generally Catholics/Nationalists that called it Derry, the official name for the city right now, or Doire (the irish name for the city) and Protestants/Unionists that called it Londonderry, y'know, to emphasise the link to Britain. Really, just about everyone these days says Derry, 'cause it's more convienient.

We're a petty bunch here in Norn' Iron'. ;)

(P.S. You should come up to Derry more often. There're less goffics.)

Maybe so, but there are far too many hills. You can spot a derry person a mile off because of the angle they walk at.

Thanks for the mention, but have you ever been chased for taking a photo? Do you take one then run away? I took a pic of some guy sending an email in one of those email phone boxes, he was really concentrating, he wasn't too pleased so I deleated it cos there was no talking to him. He was rather angry.

Nope, never had to run away - actually I ask and get consent for almost all of my pics. I try to pile on the charm - but it depends on the kind of pic am trying to get. Go over to Iced Coffee, (see links at right), he's got some good photos of locals.

ahh charm.. i have about as much charm as a kick in the teeth.
