The 1913 Dublin Lockout was a defining and pivotal industrial dispute between workers and employers in the Irish capital, which began on the 26th of August, 1913 and lasted until January 18th, 1914. Central events took place in Dublin, the Irish capital, and is viewed now as one of the most significant moments in Irish labour history as workers fought for their right to organise and unionise.
A series of images regarding the visual representation of these pivotal events can be viewed here. This series is part of a wider research project undertaken by the University College Cork titled the MultiText Project:
It is the largest and most ambitious project undertaken by any university to provide resources for students of Modern Irish History at all levels: University students, the general reader, and second-level students. The project aims to publish a minimum of 12 books, each dealing with a separate period of Irish history. Each book contains accounts of key personalities, concepts, and detailed elucidations of some case studies in the period. (source: University College Cork)
