The 1913 Dublin Lockout was a major twentieth century industrial contest and arguably the most memorable.Dublinís lockout was a defeat for the workers, but their resistance inspired their comrades elsewhere, stimulating them to further struggles such as came to pose the possibility of their class taking state power.The Lockout has been portrayed too often as the climax of the initial period of the general workers mobilising for a place in the sun. Less analysed is its longterm effect on the Irish labour movement and through this on the overall history of Ireland subsequently.
