The Land League held a rally on this field to bring national attention to evictions in general, and to protest the eviction of the Dempsey’s in Loona. Charles Stewart Parnell, a mayor figure in the land reform movement, was said to be in attendance that day.

The Dempsey’s were not evicted on the day of the rally, although the eviction was executed a few days later, after the attention had died down.
