Eviction Pageant

Posted by:

A very realistic eviction was re-enacted on the evening of August 2nd last as part of the Gathering celebrations. The pageant was written and produced by Eamonn McNicholas who played the role of John O’Reilly. John and his wife were cruelly evicted by the bailiff who gained entry to their humble cottage by use of a battering ram. Although the man of the house put up a very brave, indeed heroic, fight to save his home it was to no avail. He and his wife were dragged away screaming after their home was torched with fire, making it impossible for them to re-enter it.
