Bloody Sunday- Dublin GAA Remembers

Sat, 21st November 2020

On November 21st 1920, 14 people went to a football match at Croke Park between Dublin and Tipperary. 

They never came home. 

This week, Dublin GAA and The GAA remember Bloody Sunday, on the 100th Anniversary of the tragedy. 

On Saturday morning, The Lord Mayor of Dublin joined Dublin GAA at Parnell Park to unveil two plaques and two wreaths, to remember the victims of Bloody Sunday: 

Our Senior footballers laid a wreath in memory of the victims of Bloody Sunday, following the Leinster Final: 

DubsTV's Bloody Sunday details the events of that fateful day, narrated by Dublin City Council's Historian-in-residence Cormac Moore. 

Watch it here: 

This week, we have also heard from family members of those who witnessed the events of November 21st 1920- and eyewitnesses to the events of that day, too:

Our Senior footballers wore a special jersey for Saturday’s Leinster Football Final against Meath, with a commemorative design on either sleeve, to mark the 100th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday. 

A commemoration was also be held at Croke Park, before the Leinster Football Final. 

Several Dublin GAA Clubs also marked the anniversary this week:
