South Dublin Libraries has just published a 1913 Lockout  information pack for late primary and early secondary schools. This is the first of a series of centenary commemorative educational resources that are part of South Dublin Libraries’ ongoing commitment to preserving our history through education.

The pack covers working-class poverty in Dublin, industrial relations, the personalities involved in the dispute and the outcomes. These topics are covered  using accessible language that students will easily understand.

The pack includes teachers’ notes.

The downloadable information pack is available in PDF format here:
