Destined - Derry

The Foyle Road on the City side of Derry is the location of the Foyle Valley Railway Museum, closed to the public since around 2014. In the main exhibition area, the handsome old steam trains and trams still reside on the old Donegal line, beside their recreated station platform. A few years back there were plans in place to demolish the museum and mothball the exhibits; but, somewhat surreally, it is now home to DTNI member Destined, a charity that provides services to around 200 people with learning disabilities, from birth to old-age.

Ligoniel Improvement Association

Up on the periphery of north-west Belfast, in the foothills of Divis mountain, lies the ‘village’ of Ligoniel. The village was founded expressly to produce linen, back in the days when linen was big business in this part of the world.
