Foyle Legends

Tell Us Who Your Legends Are...

Translink ‘Foyle Legends' is a campaign designed to honour local heroes who have excelled in their industry and shine the spotlight on Derry-Londonderry.

We are calling on the public to nominate local living legends to feature on our first ever eye-catching ‘Foyle Legends’ double-decker bus – our Bus of Legends.

As it travels across the city, the bus will pay tribute to the inspirational individuals and remind us of the incredible wealth of local talent. Perhaps it’s a sporting hero, an acclaimed actor or a musical genius – we’re encouraging everyone who’s proud of Derry-Londonderry to vote!
