Bonfire night 15th August 2016 in Derry Ireland. Bonfires have been part of Catholic and Protestant cultures for generations. Bonfires have come under much criticism since the troubles have subsided and are now very controversial. This was captured in the Catholic / republican Bogside area of Derry on the day of the bonfire. In the picture you can see lots of locals gathered to the left watching the youths of the Bogside build the bonfire made mostly of wooden pallets. In the foreground you see cars approaching. This bonfire stirred huge controversy as it blocked a public road.
