The US family with Carrowmenagh links that took part in D�shl�n 1881: Living The Eviction

A reality TV programme based on the Carrowmenagh Evictions of December 1881 has been nominated for an IFTA.

Thirteen families were turned out in the tiny Inishowen village in 1881 when they couldn’t pay their rent.

Dúshlán 1881: Living The Eviction filmed two families - one from America and one from Ranafast - for three days and nights in Ulster American Folk park as their ancestors would have lived at the time of the evictions.

The series’ assistant producer was Jeanette Nic Lochlainn from Burnfoot.

She knew Carrowmenagh man John McLaughlin whose writings about the evictions inspired her with the idea for the show.

Dúshlán is up against The Great Irish Bake Off, Jockey Eile and Operation Transformation in the Reality Programme category.
