The week in Music



There are two Bloody Sundays in Irish history. The first was in 1920 when British troops fired into the crowd at a football match in Dublin in retaliation for the killing of British undercover agents. The second was on January 30, 1972, when British paratroopers killed 13 Irish citizens at a civil rights protest in Derry, Northern Ireland. The song is more about the second Bloody Sunday.

Didn't they get some heavy criticism for playing this song on the site where it happened?

My memory is faulty - the controversy was when the song was first released in 1983 and not when they played it at Croke Park.
The controversy on site was a soccer match between Ireland and England on the date a couple years ago.
