Centenary of the Dublin Lockout

7th May 2013 Belfast City Hall and the ICTU commemorate the centenary of the Dublin Lockout of 1913 by commissioning Jane Cassidy and Maurice Leyden to tell the story of the 1913 Dublin Lockout and the Belfast Dockers’ Strike which preceded it through words and music, using the songs and ballads of the day to tap into the lives of the men, women and children of the slums, as they embarked on a David and Goliath struggle with their employers. Jane and Maurice are joined on stage by Barry Gleeson, Nollaig Casey and Rod McVey.
