The 1913 Lock Out

During 2013 President Michael D. Higgins delivered a number of speeches commemorating the 1913 Lock-Out.  The quote below is from a speech at a Community Garden Party commemorating the 1913 Lock-Out at Áras an Uachtaráin on Sunday, 30th June 2013

This is, of course, a decade of important commemorations for us here in Ireland; a time when we remind ourselves of, and mark, some of the significant events which lead up to and brought about the formation of an Irish Free State. It is a time to remember that a knowledge of our history is intrinsic to the creation of active and responsible citizenship and to the building of communities and a society that are fair, inclusive and participative. This year we are celebrating the courage, endurance, and historical human rights significance of the Great Dublin Lockout of 1913.
