Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The original (identical) Maypole came from a ship disaster in the 1800's offshore from Holywood, and the mast was taken and presented to the people of Holywood as a gesture of thanks for their assistance in the rescue. I remember it being replaced circa 1953/4, and again just a year or so ago. It was about that same year that the May dances around the maypole ceased, with my 11-year-old sister being crowned as the May Princess! I believe they were reinstated a year or two ago, although my sister was living in Canada at the time and was close to 80 years old!! It is now the only maypole in the whole of Ireland.
