About 10. Shadows of Trench

10. Shadows of Trench in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan.

On the Wall beside Convent Avenue Gate, Church Hill. William S. Trench was a Land-agent on the local estates before and after the famine.

He promoted assisted emigration and carried out numerous evictions and as a result he was not well liked by the tenants.

He wrote 'Realities of Irish Life' to justify his actions. This poem is from Kavanagh's early works.

Note: Just beyond the gate a local eccentric carved snippets of history on the stone wall. These have been over painted in black and white to highlight them.
