50th Anniversary Edition of ITGWU Magazine “Liberty” January 9, 2017

An issue of “Liberty” the ITGWU Magazine produced to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Union. It’s really fascinating and covers the 1913 Lockout , The Citizen Army, James Connolly and much more. It’s 96 pages so scanned it into two pdfs.

From the 1922 General Election a flyer for Cathal O’Shannon who was running for Labour in the Louth Meath Constituency. He topped the poll and was elected, however he lost his seat running in Louth in 1923 and failed to be elected again in 1927 when running in Meath.
He was a founding member of the Socialist Party of Ireland, led by James Connolly. His wikipedia entry gives details of an interesting life. He was the father of the late broadcaster and journalist Cathal O’Shannon.
Many thanks to the sender.
