The Battle of Carrickshock took place in 1831 in south Kilkenny. The conflict was borne out of a tithe tax that was enforced despite difficult harvests. The tithe was a tax that Catholics had to pay to the Church of Ireland even though they were of a different religion. And so the peasants revolted to protect their rights.(First Broadcast 1983)
