Citizens:Lockout 1913 to 2013. Episode 4 Defeat.



By the end of January 1914 the Lockout ended with a decisive and crushing victory for the employers. Many leave Dublin to seek work in English cities and the striking girls and women from Jacobs are worst off. Most do not get work again and those that do are not allowed back until April. Actor Ronnie McCann voices James Connollys prophetic words, Dublin is isolated, and we hear from Connollys great grandson James Connolly Heron and from Larkins great grandchildren, Jim and Aoife Breslin. Historians Emmet O Connor, Padraig Yeates, Theresa Moriarty, Ann Mathews and Diarmaid Ferriter vividly describe events while author Ruth Dudley Edwards, a biographer of Connolly assesses the leadership of Connolly, Larkin and Constance Markievicz.
