Remembering Bloody Sunday

50 Years Ago

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians is proud to present “Remembering Bloody Sunday 50 Years Ago” with guest speaker Matt Morrison, who was present on that terrible day.

Bloody Sunday is remembered as a tragic day in the history of Ireland. On January 30, 1972, a peaceful Civil Rights March was being held in Derry organized by the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association.

The “Remembering Bloody Sunday” webinar with Matt Morrison will take place, Saturday, January 15 at 11:00 am EST. Click here to register in advance for this free event.

British Soldiers from the 1st Battalion Parachute Regiment shot unarmed civilians and 14 individuals died that day. These victims and their families have never received justice.

Matt Morrison, originally from Derry and now living in St Louis, Missouri, was there that fateful day and will share his memories from that time.
