This will include musical performances; well-known actors reading from Strumpet City, and drama including an excerpt from ANU Productions’ highly-praised Living the Lockout and a scene from the Risen People. And hear Jim Larkin address the crowds from a 1913-era tram!
Bloody Sunday re-enactment
Immediately after the official Lockout commemoration, there will be a re-enactment of the events of Bloody Sunday – which took place on 31st August 1913 – when police baton-charged crowds on Sackville (now O’Connell) Street. Organised by the North Inner City Heritage Group with Dublin Council of Trade Unions.
