Remember & Create Together:
Fighting Words Local Community Project

The local community around Croke Park are an integral part of our programme of events. To create a legacy together, the GAA Museum and Croke Park Community Team have teamed up with 'Fighting Words' on a project that will engage with local residents to create a lasting piece of work to commemorate this very important year.

Fighting Words will run a series of workshops for local older residents. This will involve having conversations to uncover a more personal history of the area and its people. They'll chat about general history, as well as stories and accounts of Bloody Sunday which may have been passed down over time.

The goal is to capture these conversations and create a book co-written by the participants.

About Fighting Words:
Located beside Croke Park on Behan Square, the aim of Fighting Words is to help children, young people and adults to discover and harness the power of their own imaginations and creative writing skills. At its core, Fighting Words is about using the creative practice of writing and storytelling to strengthen our children and teenagers – from a wide range of backgrounds – to be resilient, creative and successful shapers of their own lives.
