Puckoon

Status: Completed

Ireland 1924. Following the partition of the country the new Boundary Commission has been charged with defining the route of the border. They decide it would be expedient if all the Commissioners held a red pencil on the map and everyone pull on it to mark out the last section of the border. With a great deal of pushing and shoving, Ireland is divided. Unfortunately, in their haste, they cut Puckoon in two, one half of the village is in the North, the other in the South. Within days border posts and barbed wire fences are set up, causing mayhem.
