Derry' comes from the Irish doire', meaning an oak grove. West of the River Foyle is the old city, built in the 1600s to replace an even earlier city destroyed by fire. The city was rebuilt by a consortium of City of London companies, which were granted land in return for developing the area and colonizing it with English and Scottish settlers, a policy known as Plantation". Thus in 1613 Derry received its prefix. The city's walls, a mile in circumference, date from the time. They are still intact, making Derry the only city in Ireland with a complete circuit of walls.
