Events are taking place in Dublin today to mark 100 years since the events of Bloody Sunday.

32 people were killed or fatally wounded in attacks across the capital on 21st November 1920, including 14 during a massacre in Croke Park during a football match between Dublin and Tipperary.

This evening, 14 flames will be lit on Hill 16 in memory of the victims.

The Taoiseach and President will lay a wreath at a special GAA ceremony in advance of the Leinster football final between Dublin and Meath.

A minute’s silence will be observed before all GAA Championship matches this weekend, while a monologue of '14 Voices from the Bloodied Field’ will stream on the Abbey Theatre’s social media channels throughout the day.
