1300: Visit to Michael Davitt Museum and Laying of Wreath on Grave of Michael Davitt

Michael Davitt was the son of a Mayo family who were impoverished by the circumstances in which they were forced to live. The family were evicted and forced to emigrate to Britain, where he later lost an arm in an industrial accident. He returned to Ireland and founded and led the Irish Land League, a movement of Irish farmers who struggled to win back control of their own land through agitation, peaceful resistance and peaceful politics. The League invented a tactic of boycott, so-called after it was first applied against the land agent of Lord Erne a British landed peer. The land agent was Captain Charles Cunningham Boycott.
