bomb blast in Derry – enough is enough


The remains of a car which exploded in Derry/Londonderry on 3 August 2010.


The news that there has been a bomb in Londonderry comes just as I was turning in for the night. The Police Service of Northern Ireland is warning that there will be traffic disruption on Tuesday morning.

This is the second bomb near the area of Strand Road / Culmore Road in two months. The first was on 3 August outside Strand Road PSNI station. Tonight’s exploded outside the Da Vinci centre on Culmore Road, and has caused damage to many shops and local businesses.

Although, at the time of writing, there appears to have been no claiming of this attack, it seems pretty clear that it will be the work of the so-called dissident republican terrorists.

It is clear that they feel threatened by how Northern Ireland has changed, by how we have moved on so that the politicians elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly are working together for the betterment of the whole community.

That self same community of Northern Ireland needs to stand up and join me in saying

Enough is enough.

I urge anyone with any information about tonight’s attack to contact the Police Service of Northern Ireland on

Tel: 0845 600 8000

or by email :

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers
