In a special partnership with the GAA we mark the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday with a broadcast from Croke Park.

14 Voices From The Bloodied Field brings together 14 writers, 14 directors, and 14 actors to give voice to the men, woman, and children who were killed in Croke Park on 21 November 1920.

They were: Jane Boyle, James Burke, Daniel Carroll, Michael Feery, Tom Hogan, Michael Hogan, James Matthews, Patrick O’Dowd, Jerome O’Leary, William (Perry) Robinson, Thomas Ryan, John William (Billy) Scott, James Teehan, Joe Traynor.

Joining the line-up for 14 Voices From The Bloodied Field is Christy Moore, who will perform a special adaptation of his song Minds Locked Shut, which he originally wrote for a Derry City Bloody Sunday Memorial Concert in 1983. 14 Voices From A Bloodied Field will be introduced by the legendary commentator, Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, who has come to be regarded as the “voice” of Gaelic games.

On the eve of the centenary, this commemorative performance will be streamed on our website and social channels.
