Local sporting legends have been artistically immortalised as part of an exciting reimaging project in the Brandywell area.

The visual arts initiative on the Lecky Road was completed today, commissioned through the Bric Project, and generations of local heroes have been honoured on the public mural.

Derry artist, Gareth Doherty, spoke to Gary Ferry with the paint still fresh.
