B100dy Sunday- 21st November 1920
This Saturday marks 100 years since the killings in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday. There are scheduled national commemorative events running over the coming days that we hope you will engage with.
The Club, to commemorate the lives lost on Bloody Sunday, will fly our national Tricolour flag at the clubhouse over the weekend.
B100dy Sunday – A Candle at Dusk
As we cannot gather to commemorate the lives lost on Bloody Sunday, we are calling on the GAA Community to do so from afar. We are asking all our Units, members, and supporters to light a candle at dusk this Saturday evening, 21 November. Attached to this mail is a video explaining this small but poignant request. We would ask you to share the video on social media, with your wider Club membership lists, and through your own direct messaging channels.
You can also tag your commemorative moments and actions in the coming days with #B100dySunday.
Croke Park Commemoration.
On Saturday evening the GAA will stage a special remembrance ceremony to honour the 14 victims killed at Croke Park by Crown Forces on Bloody Sunday, November 21, 1920. They will be remembered in a ceremony that will coincide with the lighting of 14 flames in a dedicated area of Hill 16 and a corresponding pillar of light dedicated to each of those who died.
Ard Stiúrthóir Tom Ryan and Uachtarán CLG John Horan will lay wreaths on the spot where Tipperary corner back Michael Hogan was fatally shot that day, an area of the field in front of Gate 43 at the northern end of the stadium. They will be joined by Uachtarán na hÉireann Michael D Higgins and An Taoiseach Micheál Martin.
