Given the debate elsewhere on the site about the Soviets I thought this may be of interest.
This documentary was shown on TG4 a year or two back.
Sóivéidí na hÉireann – Soviet Ireland.

A programme about the ways in which the Russian Revolution influenced the working class of Ireland during the Tan War period. Workers took possession of factories and other workplaces around the country and soviets were declared, democratic councils under the workers’ control.
