Anyone found breaching the 1714 rule and letting cows wander onto the walls could be fined one shilling for each offending animal.
The law-flouting was carried out with good intentions however, as it helped launch a newly formed Agricultural Society's celebration of the farming heritage of the north west of Ireland.
"It's all about the historical significance of agriculture in the city of Derry and re-connecting people to their agricultural heritage," explained Minister O'Neill.
"So the fact that we have cattle up here, something that was outlawed in the 1700s, well it's a good step and I think people are enjoying it."
Co Londonderry Agricultural Show Society, which is almost 200 years old, organised the parade and it is keen to remember the area's farming background.
Farmer Ian Marks said back in the 1800s agriculture was very important to those in the North West.
"That society created the first agricultural college in the English-speaking world back in 1826, which was great foresight on their part in establishing that agricultural college just outside Eglinton," he explained.
The agricultural heritage project is part of the rural community's contribution to the Derry-Londonderry UK City of Culture Year in 2013.
