The 17thMayCoup was the coup in Roscamistan from 17 May 2021 to 18 May 2021 by Captain James Irwin and Major Kayden Conboy with help from Deputy Defence Minister Dean Merritt which ended the First Brotherton Presidency and brought James Irwin to power.

Background

The coup took place in the school most of the government at the time went to, Gaelscoil Dara. The day was going smoothly until the former presidential candidate Dean Merritt with help from other dissatisfied mnisters including James Irwin, Premier of Mervustan province and Major Kayden Conboy ,Chancellor of Galway city, accused Andrew Brotherton of mismanagement of Roscamistan and destroying Mervustan's autonomy.

A few Ministers including Tadhg O'Regan defended President Brotherton's actions as the chief executive and eventually a bloodless coup led to the overthrow of President Brotherton's government and Andrew Brotherton himself. The rebels otherwise know as the provincial guards of Mervustan outnumbered Brotherton and the RLF nearly 3 to 1 and they easily took control of goverment. The conflict that followed was know as the Roscamistan civil war, formally known as the Mervustan Conflict.

Roscamistan during the coup

What made the Coup even more embarrassing for the disgraced former president was that three months before the day Roscamistan was founded. The day after, James Irwin became President and Major Kayden Conboy became the Vice-President replacing Culann Burke. Andrew Brotherton was eventually put under house arrest and reduced to Minister of Internal Polish Affairs. As the Mervustan Conflict started to take off, the streets became unsafe as terror attacks were very common.

The end of the Irwin Administration

As time went on Irwins support started to crumble due to neglect and mismanagement. The Mervustan Conflict ended on 21 June when Vice President of Roscamistan Kayden Conboy walked out on James, disbanding the Mervustan provincial guards leaving no one left for the RLF to fight. Two days later, on the 23 June 2021 James Irwin resigned from office.

Legacy

The coup is immortalised as a national holiday in Roscamistan as a lesson to people who wish to try and repeat such a attack in democracy again. The Leader of the Coup James Irwin was given the honorary title of Captain in Chief of Mervustan or just Captain for short. Kayden Conboy received an honorary chancellorship of Galway city for his work as Chancellor of Galway city and later the second Vice President of Roscamistan.

The National holiday is celebrated by fireworks.

The title of Sheriff of Mervustan was given to Dean Merritt for his work in Roscamistan
