Watch Knuckle - Alternative Versions.
Like many people, I watched numerous fights between Travellers on
Youtube. I never really understood what motivated two men to stand in
an old, mucky lane - and throw down until both were bloody and bruised.
'Knuckle' provides the back-story to why all of these fights went down.
It begins in 1997 when the director is asked to film a wedding for a
then 18 year old, Michael Quinn McDonagh. The footage for the
documentary spans over a decade up to 2009, documenting a cross-family
feud between the Quinn McDonaghs and the Joyces. Both the Quinn
McDonaghs, and Joyces are related. But this does not stop the ensuing
battle that would rage on between the families up to present day.
Both families create video tapes, to taunt the opposing family and
'send for' a representative to fight. The fights are documented, some
ending in violent fashion, while others ending in a mutual agreement
for a draw.
The first documented fight shows James Quinn of the Quinn McDonaghs and
Paddy Joyce, throw down in a quiet country lane. The fight is short,
but brutal. Although it is violent, both fighters fight under fair
rules - which ensures that no head-butting, biting or kicking is
allowed - and when a man is defeated, the fight is over.
This would set the stage for the rest of the documentary. The film is
fresh, and shows an often unseen side of the Irish Traveller community.
Big money is often up for grabs, one fight alone has a purse of
£120,000 - larger than the purses of many of today's professional
Anyone who has seen the Irish traveller fights on Youtube, and wants to
get a better understanding of the story behind these fights - should
watch this documentary. Credit to the director - as this is the
culmination of 12 years work. I can't think of any other documentary
that is shot over such a long period.
