    Big Barenknuckle Traveller Fights

    This took place last weekend, there's been murder the last few months fights and full blown riots between some of these families so I think this was a straightener i.e. fights that would settle the fued, or prolong it I'm not sure how it works. As with all bareknuckle fights there's no time limit the fight goes on until one of the guys is knocked out or gives up.

    How do you find out about stuff like this? I'm assuming bareknuckle is illegal in Ireland.

    Local gossip moslty, there are fueds going on all the time between traveler families, plus theres loads of videos now on youtube, including this classic, where the term "Shite in a bucket" is coined.

    I wonder how they'd react if someone got all mma, like kicking or grappling instead of just punching.

    There's a documentary called "Knuckle" (recently available on NetFlix) that goes into the culture that supports these fights. Rites of passage, "sport", ritual violence/pressure release, gambling opportunities, showmanship, etc. - a strange brew from the outsider's perspective.
