The ceremony took place in Grangemockler, home village of Michael Hogan who was killed by British soldiers in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday and after whom the Hogan Stand is named.

Among those at the reception in the Grangemockler Community Hall - formerly the local school where Michael Hogan was a pupil - was his nephew Michael Hogan who said he was delighted to have been in Croke Park to see the historic win by the Tipp minors.
