Con Markievicz would still leave the Church of Ireland — 3 Comments

  1. I don’t know where you saw that list of commemorations but it would not surprise me in the least if it were an official one. The Labour Party hardly wants to be reminded of the reasons it was set up nor of the views of its founders, Connolly and Larkin.

    The blacklisting of strikers by employers that followed the lockout contributed to the number of Dubliners who joined the British Army and died in huge numbers on the Western Front and other places. Most joined because they needed to feed their families.

    The political and social descendants of the employers who blacklisted strikers are the ones at the top of Irish political, social and economic power today. Plus ca change.

  2. Martin,

    It’s the Church of Ireland’s own list of commemorations that appeared in the General Synod Book of Reports.
