Derry (officially Londonderry), is the 2nd-largest city in Northern Ireland and the 4th-largest city on the Ireland island, renowned for its architecture. The name Derry is anglicisation of the Irish "Doire" or "Daire" meaning "oak grove". In 1613, Derry was granted Royal Charter by King James I. The city gained the "London" prefix in order to reflect the funding of its construction by London guilds. While Londonderry is known colloquially as Derry, its official name is also commonly used and remains a legal one.
The old walled Derry city lies on the west bank of River Foyle, spanned by a couple of road bridges and a footbridge. Today the city covers both banks - Waterside on the east and Cityside on the west. The district administered by Derry City contains both City of Derry Airport and Londonderry Port. In 2013, Londonderry became the inaugural UK City of Culture.
The population of the city was 85,000 at 2008 Census, while Derry Urban Area had a population of 93,500. Derry is situated near the border with County Donegal and has had a close link with it for many centuries. Saint Colmcille is the person traditionally seen as founder of the original Derry. He is a holy man from Tír Chonaill, which is the old name for almost all modern County Donegal.
Londonderry Port at Lisahally is the most westerly port of the United Kingdom. It has capacity for 30,000-ton ships. The LPHC (Londonderry Port and Harbour Commissioners) announced record turnover, profits and tonnage figures for 2008 which are the result of significant capital expenditure program for the period 2000-2007 of around £22M. Tidal River Foyle is navigable Derry's coast to about 16 km (10 miles) inland.
