A monument to one of the victims of Bloody Sunday at Croke Park in 1920 who was buried in an unmarked grave will be erected at Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin.
On Wednesday, 21 November, the 98th anniversary of the atrocity, the GAA will hold a ceremony at the final resting spot of John William Scott, who was one of 14 people killed when British forces opened fired at Croke Park.
Scott was 14 years old when he suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the chest while attending a Dublin-Tipperary football match.
From Fitzroy Avenue in the shadow of the stadium, he was one of three children killed in the tragedy and was, until now, among eight of the victims buried in unmarked graves.
GAA President John Horan will unveil a monument at his grave in Glasnevin Cemetery as part of the GAA’s Bloody Sunday Graves Project which has been identifying the graves of those killed.
The ceremony will take place at 12.30pm.
It will be the fourth grave out of the eight to have been acknowledged with plans in place to honour the four remaining victims in unmarked graves between now and the centenary of Bloody Sunday in 2020.
