Motorhome Hire Derry
The rural county of Londonderry or Derry makes up one of six counties in Northern Ireland and resembles the shape of a cheese wedge on the map. The walled city of Derry is the second most populous city in Ireland and is dubbed the maiden city as its walls remain unbreached. The county acquires its name from the Irish word Doire meaning oak grove. The prefix London was appended in 1613 when the city obtained a royal charter from King James I. The title of the county causes much political dispute. The Republic of Ireland calls the county Derry while the British authorities use the name Londonderry. The Mount Sandel Mesolithic site in Coleraine is one of the oldest archaeological sites in Ireland and its origin’s trace back to 7,000 BC. The history of Derry is rooted in social mythology.
