This supplement that was distributed with the ITGWU publication Liberty News (posted here last week) covers the Limerick Soviet and other events in the history of the ITGWU across four pages. It notes that:

The special anniversary edition of Liberty produced last year was not intended to be a comprehensive history of the Union. It was merely a collection of highlights from the rich tapestry of events and personalities that have contributed to the development of the country’s largest union. However, we are now enlarging that collection with the publication of this supplement which may be inserted into ‘Liberty 75’.

The piece itself considers the events leading up to and including the creation of the Limerick Soviet in 1919. On the last page there is a piece on Early Days in the South-East, which examines the establishment of the ITGWU in Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny.
