Ahead of this evening’s table quiz at Moll Carthy’s Bridge, we briefly look back at an event when 6,000 people converged on Moll Carthy’s:
“On January 23 (1887), an enthusiastic demonstration under the auspices of the National League was held at Moll Carthy’s Bridge, situated eight miles from the town of Kanturk. There was an enormous assemblage, estimated at 6,000 persons. There were two brass bands and several fife and dram bands in attendance, accompanied by contingents from all the surrounding branches of the League, including Banteer, Dromagh, Dromtarriff, Millstreet, Ballyvourney, Carrigenema, Newmarket, Ballyclough, Lyre, Kilcorney, and Nadd. A large force of police under the Millstreet district inspector was present. A Government note-taker was also present and took notes of the speeches.” – from the NZ Tablet
