A new artwork celebrating 28 iconic figures from Londonderry will help recast Cornshell Fields, which one community worker says is badly served in terms of amenities.

Catherine O’Donnell from Off the Street Community Youth Initiative said: “Cornshells is a large housing estate with absolutely no provisions – it has a shop and above that is a little community hall. There are no youth provisions – it’s out on its own. This is a reimaging and promotion of Cornshells. We want to make it a tourist attraction.”
