Ceremony: GAA members and supporters will remember the 14 people who were killed on Bloody Sunday in Croke Park

According to the GAA website, the organisation’s president John Horan has called on GAA members and supporters and the general public to light a candle at dusk this Saturday ‘in memory of the 14 people who were killed on Bloody Sunday in Croke Park in 1920 by British Forces’.

There will also be a wreath laying ceremony at Croke Park this coming Sunday but the candles and the wreath laying are only part of a much larger programme of commemoration for the centenary of Bloody Sunday 1920.

Already there is an exhibition at Croke Park and the GAA has specially commissioned videos, podcasts, documentaries and film series to bring the story to a broader audience in a digital age.
