This year’s Summer School is the second in the on-going series on aspects of the Decade of Commemorations: the background, progress and outcomes of the 1913 Dublin Lockout. George Russell strikingly described it in these words; “You determined deliberately in cold blood to starve out one third of the population of this city, to break the manhood of the men by the sight of the suffering of their wives and the hunger of their children”. It was a massive, extended and bitter event which ended sadly in failure.
