Dublin 1913 Lockout

The 1913 Lockout was the spark that lit the Irish revolutionary movement, that culminated in the 1916 Rising, War of Independence and eventual freedom for Ireland. James Connolly led a movement which rejected the terrible conditions of employment that workers were subjected to: a strike was followed by an employer-led lockout, which grabbed the headlines worldwide.

Expore the subject through graphic novels, children's historical fiction and Gary Granville's history of the time and events.
