The Chair of the Tipperary GAA Bloody Sunday Commemorations Committee Seamus McCarthy says they intend to complete all graveside events in memory of those involved in events 100 years ago.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of the committee’s plans to mark the centenary in 2020 were delayed.

Tipperary footballer Michael Hogan was one of 14 people killed by British Forces at Croke Park on November 21, 1920.

Speaking to TippFM, McCarthy pledged that they will complete the graveside orations across to honour the memory of those that died.

“We still have plenty to do. We’re going to have Loughmore – Castleiney obviously,” he said.

“We’re going to have two people in Glasnevin, Clonmel, Ballylooby – Castlegrace, Ballingarry where James Teehan is and Templederry. And Bansha where Tommy Ryan – the secretary of the South Board who issued the challenge – is buried.”

“So, we have plenty when the time comes and I’m sure all the clubs will embrace that as well.”
