The GAA marked the 95th anniversary of the events of Bloody Sunday tonight with a special ceremony at Croke Park before the start of the EirGrid International Rules test between Ireland and Australia.
The date of November 21, 1920 will be forever etched into the history of the GAA and that of Croke Park stadium as a result of the tragic events which saw British forces fire into the crowd attending a Dublin-Tipperary football challenge match.
There were 14 people killed, among them Tipperary player Michael Hogan.
The lights of Croke Park were dimmed and 14 flames lit on Hill 16 to represent each of the lives lost on that fateful day.
