Event on the Shore Green in Buncrana; Cahir O’Doherty Fights back – re-enactment
Last Saturday I was sent to Buncrana (among other places) to take photographs for the Inishowen Independent. A big event took place for the Heritage week; “Cahir O’Doherty Fights Back.” It was a re-enactment of the events surrounding the history of the O’Doherty clan, the arrival of the English at Derry in 1600 and the uprising of Cahir Rua O’Doherty, the last Gaelic chieftain of Inishowen.
I LOVE this kind of event! There was a colourful parade leading up to the Shore Green and the main event. It was outdoors and free, plenty of space and an awsome backdrop for photography. People dressing up and getting into a role (Oh the expressions were delightful!). An educational true story about Inishowen was told and played out.
Here are a couple examples of the photos I took. Were you there? Are you in the photos?
