The Bodyke Evictions: Orators and Agitators


Below, an exchange of views between the landlord and his agents concerning Peter Flanagan’s rent. Flanagan was a publican in Scariff, where he lived, and held 50 statute acres in Ballydonahane.
In spite of being a former Secretary of the Scariff branch of the Land League he took no part in the Combination, preferring to settle with O’Callaghan.
In this letter the landlord’s agent conveys Flanagan’s offer of £5 a year for grazing of the mountain at
Ballydonahane but the offer is refused.
