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.

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!
