The gable wall with its slogan“You Are Now Entering Free Derry” was painted by John Caker Casey, on 5th January 1969. The name “Free Derry” was given to the areas of the Bogside, Creggan and Brandywell that were barricaded off from the security forces between August 1969 and July 1972. The barriers were removed during “Operation Motorman” on 30 July 1972.
