Protesters 'drive' Bush from Ireland
Saturday, June 26, 2004

CLARECASTLE, Ireland (Reuters) -- Irish protesters used Shakespeare to
blitz George W. Bush on Saturday, invoking Macbeth, a ghost and a witch
  to cast a spell on the U.S. president and drive him, symbolically at
least, from Irish soil.

Some 500 demonstrators marched on Dromoland Castle, the 16th century
turreted mansion in western Ireland where Bush met European Union
leaders for a summit.

When they were stopped at a police road block, they staged their own
version of Shakespeare's bloody Scottish tragedy.
