Londonderry set to officially be renamed Derry (Rté)

The vote on the name change passed with the full support of Sinn Féin, the SDLP and the Independent councillors, despite opposition from the minority unionist block A decision by Derry City and Strabane District Council to change the official name of Londonderry to Derry has been described as “sectarian” and “disgusting” by unionists.

The new move by the council was voted upon at the Guildhall yesterday evening.

The council will now write to the Environment Minister Mark H Durkan of the SDLP, who is from the city itself, on how to go about the change.
