Derry’s Awful Massacre – SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY 50 Years Ago

31 January 2022

Back in 1983 Irish mega stars U2 released their political classic
SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY. The song describes the horror felt
by an observer of the The Troubles In Northern Ireland, the
devastating Ethno-nationalist conflict (Protestants vs Catholics,
Nationalists vs Unionists) that lasted for about 30 years, late 60s
to 1998.

The most dramatic event was the killing of 14 unarmed civil rights
protesters by British troops in Derry on Sunday, January 30, 1972,
50 years ago.

To remember that awful day, 50 years later, Bono and The Edge
performed a gripping acoustic version of Sunday Bloody Sunday.
