26 Howth Gun Running

Howth-gun-running

On this episode, we discuss the landing of arms for the Irish Volunteers in Howth in 1914.  We also discuss the Bachelor’s Walk Massacre that happened that same day.  We were joined by Pádraig Yeates.  Pádraig Yeates is a distinguished social and labour historian and the author of Lockout, the standard work on the great 1913 labour dispute. He is also author of the acclaimed A City in Wartime, A City in Turmoil and A City in Revolution.
