Date: Wednesday, 8th June

Time: 6.00 p.m.

Citizen Press is proud to present a high quality reprint of ‘Labour In Irish History’ by James Connolly. In the book, originally published in 1910, Connolly argues that Irish independence would bring little in the way of freedom and progress for the majority of the Irish people unless it included a fundamental challenge to the structure of society.

The launch will include contributions from a wide range of speakers including:

Jim Connolly Heron, great-grandson of James Connolly

Gerry McCormack, SIPTU Manufacturing Division Organiser

Karan O’Loughlin, SIPTU National Campaigns and Equality Organiser

Rev. Chris Hudson, former trade unionist and peace negotiator

Somaia Halawa, sister of the Irish teenager Ibrahim Halawa imprisoned in Egypt

Sean Garland, former President of the Workers’ Party

Oliver McDonagh, SIPTU Sector Organiser
