Special Bloody Sunday 1920 commemorative match programme cover for Leinster SFC final

November 20, 2020

100 years on.

This is one for the collectors...

A special Bloody Sunday commemorative match programme cover has been produced for tomorrow's Leinster SFC final featuring Dublin and Meath at Croke Park.

The Delaney Cup decider between the neighbouring counties will take place on the 100-year anniversary of the darkest day in GAA history. On November 21, 1920, 14 people were killed when British Forces opened fire during the football clash of Dublin and Tipperary and one of the victims was Tipp corner back Michael Hogan.

The GAA has organised a series of events to remember those who died on that fateful day. Wreaths will be laid on the spot where Grangemockler clubman Hogan was shot. 14 torches will also be lit on Hill 16 for each of the victims while Dublin will be wearing a special Bloody Sunday jersey.

The match programme cover sees the same pink colour and font design from the match poster and ticket for the historic Dublin-Tipperary challenge match.

You can buy the match programme here.

It's a bumper weekend of inter-county championship matches with football deciders in Leinster, Munster and Ulster, two All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals, two Joe McDonagh Cup ties and the Christy Ring and Nicky Rackard Cup finals. Be sure to follow all of the action live on the hoganstand.com match tracker.
