Derry Mayor Councillor Brenda Stevenson also got her skates on: “There is a bit of a skating craze in the city at the moment and the opportunity to see some of the professionals in action will certainly be an inspiration for the children who gathered to watch them today. It was extremely impressive – these guys just make it look so easy.”
