Locked Out: A Century of Irish Working-Class Life
This book digs deep to reveal the richness and diversity of the lives and culture of working-class people over the past century
The study of an independent Irish working class has been neglected at large by a focus on nationalism in politics, culture and wider society. And yet the Irish working class could and should have a role to play in politics and cultural production.
Locked Out seeks to advance Irish labour history in new and innovative ways, offering fresh perspectives from a new generation of Irish historians. Looking at the NSPSS and the industrial school system, the Dublin Lockout of 1913 itself, discussions of class, status and gender among Cork textile workers and the infamous 'Animal Gang' of 1930s tenement Dublin, to name but a few; this book reveals the richness and diversity of the lives and culture of Ireland's working class over the last century.
