Salford Sends Solidarity Ship to Locked Out Dubliners

One hundred years ago, a ship left the Pomona Docks in Manchester bound for Dublin. The ship was carrying food for families during the great struggle of the Dublin Lock Out in 1913. The S.S Hare was in its own labour dispute at the time but the TUC convinced the men working on the S.S. Hare sail in solidarity with the Dubliners. The food ship left Salford and a crowed greeted it on the banks of the Liffy. Read this fantastic piece of history on a truly great blog (Come Here to Me) containing stories of Dublin’s history and culture.
