Episode 1889: “To Forget The Dead Would Be Akin To Killing Them A Second Time” – Bloody Sunday Remembered, 100 Years On
The 100th anniversary of the events of Bloody Sunday comes up next month, and today we speak to author Michael Foley, as a revised and updated edition of his magnificent book “The Bloodied Field” is released.
Thanks for all the comments and support for the Bloodied Field podcast so far. Four episodes left between now and Nov 21. For anyone interested, here's a thread of the first four episodes. @officialgaa @DubGAAOfficial @TipperaryGAA #B100dySunday https://t.co/a9jpQJoesr

When Michael wrote the book in 2014, he perhaps had little idea of the extent to which this story would follow him around for years. Now with a new edition of the book, a podcast series, and a TV documentary upcoming, we talk to him about how this story affected him personally, how it’s followed him around and continues to surprise him to this day, and why our understanding of the tragedy has existed too narrowly in our minds for far too long.
On 21 November 1920, James Matthews and Patrick O'Dowd attended a football match in Croke Park. They never came home. James and Patrick were two of 14 people who were killed on Bloody Sunday.#B100dySunday – the GAA remembers.

There’s also Dundalk’s night out at the Emirates last night, and perhaps the craziest Frances Murphy’s TV Guide of them all.

Ken described the ongoing back-and-forth between Ole and his critics last week as being like an over-caffeinated conversation from an Aaron Sorkin script
