In Croke Park, the Dublin and Tipperary football teams lined out for a great challenge match. Spectators filled the grounds, completely unaware that the RIC were mobilising, intent on carrying out an act of deadly retribution for the earlier assassinations of British intelligence agents by Michael Collins’ Squad. 10 minutes into the game, shots rang out. The firing lasted for 90 seconds, killing 14 civilians and injuring 60 more. 

Today we here at CLG Chill Chartha and the GAA community all over the world stop and remember the victims of this event.
