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.
