Mullinahone Wreath Laying Ceremony
Yesterday, the Tipperary GAA Bloody Sunday Commemoration Committee, in conjunction with CJ Kickhams Mullinahone GAA Club, had a wreath-laying ceremony at the graves of the players from that club who were involved on Bloody Sunday.
It was a tasteful and dignified event to honour the men from the parish who were part of the Bloody Sunday football team. Members of their families were present, along with officials from the club and a framed photograph of the team that was presented to relatives of each team member.
Wreath-laying ceremonies have already taken place in Fethard, Grangemockler and Cahir.
Photographs by Kevin Hanly.
