Creggan' is a large housing estate in Free Derry in Ireland. It is situated on the outskirts of the city and is built on a hill. It is the largest housing estate in the city of Derry, Ireland in terms of population and not electoral wards, which splits Creggan into three and makes Shantallow the largest, as that incorporates other housing estates into one, including Galliagh and Carnhill.
The housing estate is very close to the border with County Donegal. The estate is often referred to by people from outside Free Derry as "the Creggan", this causes anger to those from the Estate as there is no prefix to Creggan.
