Wonderful, I really enjoyed reading that.

I seem to recall my father calling it Foyle Street station. Foyle Road was a continuation of Foyle Street so maybe that was the local usage.

There was definitely something of it left in 1972 as I played inside it. Went in through the side entrance and remember bricks strewn around on the floor. At least one of those rounded kiosks near the entrance was still there at that time.

Thanks we have a photo from the Derry Journal from September 1970 showing the site being cleared. We are are not able to use that photo as it is poor quality so have ordered a new print from the Derry Journal but delayed by Covid!

Will be interesting to see how cleared it was. I have always associated that memory with 1972 but it could have been 1970.
