Ireland's Bloody Sunday Remembered in Sunset Park

This Sunday, February 8th, The Bay Ridge Irish American Action Association will hold a memorial for Bloody Sunday. The tragic incident in Derry, Ireland in which 13 (or perhaps 14) demonstrators were killed. This memorial event has been going on since 1972. The article, with a link below, calls our area Bay Ridge, but all the events definitely take place in Sunset Park.

according to The Irish Echo:

The march steps off promptly at 12:30 p.m. from 58th Street and 4th Avenue in Sunset Park, Brooklyn and proceeds to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica, 60th Street and 5th Avenue for a 1 p.m. Mass. A reception will be held later at the Irish Haven, 5721 4th Avenue.
