16 April 2020
The Ebrington Factory Horn will be sounded across the city and district tonight Thursday, 16 April 2020, at 8pm in honour of the NHS and all front line staff.
The Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Cllr Michaela Boyle said the sounding of the horn is a poignant and heartfelt gesture that will resonate with the people of the city and district.
A testing exercise and pre-recording took place earlier today by staff who will facilitate the live sounding later this evening.
Extending her thanks to everyone involved in helping to make this happen, the Mayor said she hoped it will be heard by thousands of people across the city and district who step out every week to applaud and say thank you to all front line staff who are working to save lives and prevent the spread of the Corona Virus.
