C.W. Cole spent time in Ireland working as a special artist for the The Graphic reporting on the events relating to the Irish Land League, 1880. At Ballinrobe he covered the so-called Boycott Relief Expedition (12th - 26th November, 1880), in which the army escorted the 50 "Orange Labourers", employed to save Captain Boycott's crops, to and from their camp at Lough Mask.
