My Home Town

Some refer to it as ‘my home town’
While others ‘our city by the Foyle’
But whatever name is used it refers
To an ancient Irish city of renown.

From its Celtic roots it has flourished
  Through a period of political chaos
  And the later struggle for Civil Rights
  Plus the massacre of Bloody Sunday.

  But within the city there is a sense of
  Renewal and a coming together of its
  Citizens to express their society which
  Was blessed by God via St. Colmcille.
 
  A city of culture of world- wide renown
  Who gave us singers, playwrights, poets,
  Musicians, etc, who touched the hearts of
  Many throughout planet earth.

  Oh, yes, it is the adopted city of Colmcille
  Who loved its people as never before. A love
  Which is now apparent and symbolised by
  Derry opening a welcoming door.
