Thanks. Taking cue from survey of library subject headings,
I chose [[Bloody Sunday (Ireland 1920)]] and [[Bloody Sunday
(Northern Ireland 1972)]].
I'll defer writing the [[Bloody Sunday (Ireland 1920)]] entry
however, as multiple sources I've consulted so far are in no
agreement regarding the number of causalties on *either* side.
I prefer to focus instead on 18th Century Irish history, when
times were less contentious.
Okay, they weren't, but that's my excuse for now.
I believe [[Bloody Sunday - Northern Ireland]] now a redirect
to which no page points.
