The story of Jim Larkin and the lockout of Dublin workers in 1913 is brought to life with breathtaking illustrations in this graphic novel.

On August 26th 1913, the trams of Dublin stopped. The Great Dublin Lockout had begun. Over the next four months, James Larkin would lead the workers of Dublin against William Martin Murphy and the Employers Federation in a conflict that would change the face of Irish industrial relations.

Dublin was brought to its knees by the food shortages and the aftermath of Bloody Sunday. As winter approached, Larkin lead his Firey Cross campaign to England, hoping to rally the entire United Kingdom to strike in support of the Irish workers.
