The Irish Revolution and Red Clydeside, Dave Sherry
The Irish Revolution and Red Clydeside
This pamphlet explores the role of ordinary women and men during the great wave of struggles that swept Ireland and Clydeside in the period immediately before, during and after the First World War – the period of Red Clydeside (1910 -1923). It covers: Irish immigration; the Great Unrest (notably the Belfast Dock Strike and the Dublin Lock-out); the Suffragettes; the Irish Home Rule Crisis; the Easter Rising; the anti- war movement; the munitions strikes; the rent strikes; the post war struggles – including the struggle against unemployment; the Irish War of Independence; the partition of Ireland and the Irish Civil War. It will show how these events were part and parcel of an international struggle that inspired revolution across Europe and colonial rebellion.
