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.
Bloody Sunday 1920 is remembered as one of the most poignant days in Ireland’s struggle for independence. The violence of what happened in Croke Park still has the capacity to shock & move us. 100 years on, we remember the 14 people who lost their lives that day #B100dySunday

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.
Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu says it's important to remember.
She said: "So many of us feel connected to the city we live in by reading stories of its past - but history is sown with bloody battles, massacres, and lost of lives.
"Sometimes the bloodshed and battles are on our very doorstep - so it's really important to remember that loss and those sacrifices."
President Michael D Higgins, meanwhile, the events of Bloody Sunday "still shock and challenge us all" a hundred years later.
He says people may reflect on the day in different ways and we must respect that and be open to different perspectives.
