As part of the Bloody Sunday commemorations we in Na Piarsaigh CLG will turn on our floodlights and lower the tricolor to half mast from 7.21 to 8.21pm on Saturday to commemorate those who lost their lives on this day. Show your support by lighting a candle in memory.
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.
Croke Park Commemoration
On Saturday evening the GAA will stage a special remembrance ceremony to honor 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.
