This monument was created by Maurice Harron, a Northern Irish sculptor from Derry and erected in 1994. Hiring fairs were held in Letterkenny in years gone by when
children between the ages of 11 and 16 were sold for periods of six
months to wealthy farmers of the Lagan Valley. These Rabble Days were
held annually in May and November at Speer's Lane, at the corner of Upper Main Street.
