Bloody Sunday, A Bitter Legacy or A Legacy of Bitterness

The surviving Tipperary Bloody Sunday players at a reunion

On Monday week, March 9th, (Please note the change of date) John Flannery will deliver a lecture on Bloody Sunday at 8pm in the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh. The talk is presented in conjunction with the Tipperary GAA Bloody Sunday Commemoration Committee and as an OHS contribution to Nenagh 800. Bloody Sunday; A Bitter Legacy or A Legacy of Bitterness, will examine the events in Croke Park on the 21st November 1920 and how those events impacted on the GAA in the immediate aftermath and how they still resonate one hundred years later. This talk is the first in a series of events taking place over the coming months to commemorate the tragedy and which will culminate with a replay of the game in Croke Park on November 21st next.

The attack by a combined force of RIC, Auxiliaries and British army on those attending a football match between Dublin and Tipperary left fourteen people dead, including Michael Hogan – the Tipperary corner back. In excess of sixty people were wounded and many others were injured in the stampede which took place when the firing erupted. Attempts by the Authorities at the time, to blame members of the crowd for opening fire and to cover up the actions of the police failed and the event created press headlines worldwide.

The speaker, OHS member John Flannery, is also a member of the commemoration committee. A past-President of OHS, John is a regular contributor to Society lectures and has also delivered talks to historical societies throughout the country. He has also contributed to the popular TV programme Who do You Think You Are and to Ceol Cogadh na Saoirse on TG4. He holds an MA in History of Family from UL and is a member of Tipperary in the Decade of Revolution history group.

An Dúshlán – Remembering Bloody Sunday 1920 – March 27th & 28th 

On the afternoon of Sunday 21st November, 1920, as thousands gathered at Croke Park in Dublin to watch a challenge match between the great rivals Tipperary and Dublin, rumours spread about the earlier trouble in the city, when fourteen British Agents were gunned down by the IRA. But as the match got underway, neither players nor spectators could imagine the horror that was to follow, as a combined forces of RIC and British Military, angered by the morning’s events, surrounded the ground and opened fire on the crowd.

Exploring the events of Bloody Sunday 1920, ’An Dúshlán’ (The Challenge), an original stage production, will draw on the music and song of the time along with eyewitness and newspaper accounts to recall this defining moment in the struggle for Irish Independence, it’s impact on the GAA, and how the echos of those fatal shots of the 21st of November 1920 can still be heard in the Ireland of today.
