The Thundering Guns of Derry

  • Tower Museum
  • Co. Derry

The exhibition provides insights into how the cannon on the Historic Derry Walls were used, lost and restored over the past 400 years.

The Derry Walls claim to have Europe’s largest collection of cannon of known provenance. They thundered in anger during the two 17th century sieges but now have a more peaceful role in ornamenting the bastions and ramparts of Ireland’s most famous Walled City. The exhibition is an integral part of the wider Derry City and Strabane District Council's 'Walled City 400 animation programme. Further details about the walled city programme can be found at
