This was Skelliking Day — aka Skelliging or Skeleton Day — when, for as long as anyone can remember, the boys had free licence to chase the girls, corral them with ropes, tie them up and eventually douse them with water. The day was a response to the prohibitions of Lent, for whose 40 days not only meat and dairy products but also sex were outlawed. Such religious austerity resulted in a particular concentration of marriages, or Shrove weddings, in the few days before Lent began, allowing the necessary consummation of the unions. One would think any couple who missed the deadline would have to wait until after Easter — but, as always, there was an Irish solution to an Irish problem.
