Shillelagh 2.0

Postby Dave Mooney on Sat Sep 06, 2008 11:14 am

Rather than add in on the discussion 'shillelagh' as I'm asking a different question...

Is there anyone in Ireland can demo Irish stick fighting in a 19th century context and in period costume, and would be up for a lecture on its use in organised faction fighting?

I'm penning an event based around the history of Mountshannon for Heritage week '09. The Mountshannon fair days were shut down due to organised faction fighting.

I heard there was a group in Cappawhite, co. Tiperrary doing such demos. I have no idea how their technique looks like tough but you can try out there: http://www.cappawhite.ie/theatre.htm

Thanks for that. Looks to have some promise and not a million miles away either. Funny how most of the Irish stick fighting is in the US.

That site is terrible though. Not one contact anywhere. Can't even find any e-mail address for the owner on whois?

I've had to go detective and I think I've found that the founder of the theatre group owns a pub so I'll look them up or ring the post office.

Cheers for the lead.

Thanks, but I'm looking for lads that are in Ireland I can book and can show up and demo it.
Ok if they're on tour here at the time but otherwise not much good to me.

I pass the itinerant camp at Moyross on the way to work all this week, maybe I should call in.

I read on one of those sites that some travellers were ok with showing their stick fighting to one guy.

I kid you not, but maybe that's where the art is preserved :?
