Colmcille Anniversary Edition of Derry Streets to be published later this year.

In an archive interview recently recovered by his family, the late 'Streets of Derry' author John Bryson told the BBC's Mark Patterson that he was proudest of re-establishing the correct derivation of 'Shantallow' - and that it meant Old Willows and not Old Ground, as had been accepted for centuries. The updated version of John's book will be published by Colmcille Press later this year. Full interview is available on Colmcille Press's Twitter page.
