Celebrations follow Thatcher’s death


There were street parties in Derry and Belfast following news of the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher this week. A crowd, many waving flags or holding posters to remember the 1981 hunger strikers, gathered at Free Derry Corner in the city’s Bogside. Crowds also gathered on the Falls Road in west Belfast as a cavalcade of cars, many decorated with Irish flags, travelled from the Twinbrook Estate to Divis Tower on Tuesday evening.
