Derry’s Walls

Ballaí Dhoire

Ballaí Dhoire (Derry’s Walls) considers the fascinating history of Derry, the last remaining walled city in Ireland. Using specially commissioned CGI, the presenter, Fearghal Mac Uiginn, explores Derry’s monastic origins, and reconstructs the manner in which the walls were built 400 years ago. Fearghal identifies the circumstances behind the transition from monastic Derry to the plantation town of Londonderry in 1613, and he considers how the walls have shaped history both within and beyond the walled city itself.

Ballaí Dhoire, clár faoin stair a bhaineann le Doire, an t-aon chathair in Éirinn a bhfuil ballaí timpeall uirthi i gcónaí. Fiosróidh Fearghal Mac Uiginn, le cuidiú ó íomhánna ríomhghinte speisialta (CGI), foinsí mainistreacha Dhoire agus taispeánfaidh sé dúinn mar a tógadh na ballaí sin 400 bliain ó shin. Léireoidh Fearghal na cúinsí taobh thiar den athrú ó Dhoire mainistreach go plandáil Dhoire i 1613 agus cíorann sé an tionchar a bhí ag na ballaí seo ar stair Dhoire laistigh agus lasmuigh de bhallaí na cathrach.
