Award-winning journalist and author Michael Foley recounts the extraordinary story of Bloody Sunday in Croke Park and the 90 seconds of shooting that changed Ireland forever. In a deeply intimate portrait he tells for the first time the stories of those killed, the police and military personnel who were in Croke Park that day, and the families left shattered in its aftermath, all against the backdrop of a fierce conflict that stretched from the streets of Dublin and the hedgerows of Tipperary to the halls of Westminster.

On this day in 2015 and 2016, Uaneen Fitzsimons’ untimely passing was marked by other posters on this thread.

I think I was in school with her (Ms Gallagher, not the Countess). Then again it mightn’t be her at all as I haven’t seen her in almost 30 years I’d say.
