#MilitantFactionsQuotes 55: mighty molehills of pallets, sleepers and Papish effigies grew skyward to be burnt

#MilitantFactionsQuotes 55:

The only fires now came on Eleventh Night when mighty molehills of pallets, sleepers and Papish effigies grew skyward to be burnt. Each year he prayed it would rain but each year dawned fine and the mighty fire at the end of Dawson Street would creak and wobble, threaten to fall on his house. He'd thought of consulting his parish councillor but caught himself: local man questions validity and heritage of The Twelfth, Fenian sympathies, torch him instead. Despite the past being over, or as over as it would ever be.

-From "Titanic II", one of the stories in Mark Piggott's fiction/non-fiction collection "Militant Factions" available in paperback or Kindle from Amazon.
