‘Some people say the best thing about Derry is the road out of it, but those people can’t ever have used the A6. No, the best thing about Derry is Pure Derry. It’s as good as the A5 would have been if we hadn’t spent the money on Larne and Carrickfergus.’
From the self-appointed centre of the universe we bring you Pure Derry, the internet sensation in print for the first time.
Here are all our best bits – the jokes, stories and features that you’ve laughed at, objected to, commented on and shared over the last ten years.
‘Pure Derry is the best thing since weird ritual cannibalism. Or sliced bread, as I like to call it.’
‘Irreverent. Offensive. Intelligent. Daft. Closely observed and totally essential. In the sturdy spirit of Swift, Orwell and Private Eye, PD now justifiably claims satirical pole position in the City of Culture.’
