Tarring and Feathering
The Reward of the Enemies of Ireland.
The tarring and feathering by the Liberties weavers of the weavers and drapers, who defied the boycott on English cloth after the implementation of the non-importation agreements of 1784. This action was probably inspired by the American colonists' treatment of custom officals. In January 1774 the Commissioner for Customs in Boston had been tarred and feathered.
