One hundred years ago this month, Dublin society had been ripped apart by one of the worst industrial disputes of the Great Unrest period. Locked out since August, the striking workers were, by December, starving and on the verge of defeat.

Donnacha DeLong speaks to Gary Granville, author of Dublin 1913 Lockout and Legacy, about the situation in Dublin in 1913 and to Marian Larragy, activist and community journalist, about women’s involvement in the strike.
