The President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, will lead the State Commemoration of the 1913 Lockout which will take place on Saturday, 31 August 100 years precisely to the day of Bloody Sunday 1913 – at the Larkin Statue on O’Connell Street, Dublin.

We are urging all TSSA members to come along to commemorate one of the most important events in our history.

The commemoration will begin at 12.30 pm and the public are invited to attend, however, members of the public are advised to be in position by 12 noon. The city centre will remain open for business, including Arnotts’ car park.

Immediately after the official 1913 Lockout commemoration, there will be a re-enactment of the events of Bloody Sunday – which took place on 31 August 1913 – when police baton-charged crowds on Sackville (now O’Connell) Street. This part of the event is being organised by the North Inner City Heritage Group with Dublin Council of Trade Unions.
