Well done to it too.

Please note however, that some posters may wonder where Londonderry is.

It is what Nationalists, Republicans, and most other people refer to as "Derry"

Before we go any further, can we all agree, that some people like to call it Londonderry, some like to call it Derry, a bit like Dingle/Daingean and there is no need for us to have 30 pages of arguments about what the proper name of the city is.

How is it the first? Liverpool was city of culture in 2008. Technically Liverpool is in the UK.
Liverpool was the European city of culture

Not as much as Londenderry is.. sure everyone knows, to people who call Londonderry, Londonderry, nowhere is as UK as that small part of their mind which calls itself the UK.

No need to argue the city remains as Londonderry and retains a City of Derry Council and a City of Derry Airport.

The Royal Charter remains and the city remains as Londonderry

As the meerkat says... seemples

Derry is not a UK city of anything. Its not a UK city full stop.
Yes it is Cael... in the real world like.

I accept that it isn't, in your mind, but in the real world, the entity of the United Kingdom, actually does exist

So you think it is Londonderry?
Its Doire Colmcille - and the PSF collaborators on the city council wont change that.
