The Bloodied Field was first published in 2014. It's a book by journalist Michael Foley, that tells the story of Bloody Sunday and the shootings in Croke Park on November 21st 1920, that left 14 people dead. Michael has spent years researching the events that lead to that day, the aftermath of the tragedy, and the human stories behind the statistics. On this the 100th anniversary of the atrocity, The Bloodied Field has been re-published, with additional information and details. I spoke to Michael about it..
