And a Red Flag Flying
Black Pig’s Dyke Theatre Company present a new play by Aidan McQuillan and Brian Kenny
which tells the story of the 1919 Monaghan Asylum Workers Strike when the Attendants
staged an ‘Occupation’ of the Asylum. The Attendants along with Union Organiser a young
Peader O’Donnell took over the running of the Asylum for a week in January 1919 in order to
obtain their demands of better pay, working conditions and equal pay for the female
Attendants.
They set up a ‘Soviet’ and hoisted a Red Flag over the Asylum……..

A great story that makes great Theatre a new play set in Monaghan Town.

Not to be missed
