    Default The Outcome Of 1913 Lockout Paved The Way For What Happened During The Free State!

    My understanding is that the locked out workers were the losers in 1913 and that Sleeveen businessmen ala William Martin Murphy and the Catholic Church who by and large stood with those sleeveens were the winners!
    What happened when we had our free state (actually, in my life time it has been a very expensive 'Free State'), in my opinion was that we replaced one set of Basts with our own native ones e.g. Sleeveen business men and clerical lunatics!
    Any comments?

    The workers largely got their demands under the sensible leadership of Johnson. Larkin was a very divisive and evil man who should not have a statue on O' Connell Street.

    Here's a handy lowdown on Larkin the loon:

    Willie O Dea makes an appearance in the video at 42 seconds.
    A few weeks before my grandfather died, he started dipping his feet in a bucket of lard.
    He went downhill very fast after that.

    Larkin did time for embezzlement, I'm not surprised the likes of Jack O'Connor son't like to mention that fact.
