About the Irish Labour History Society

The Irish Labour History Society (ILHS) was established in 1973, with a founding objective, as outlined in our constitution, to; ‘promote the knowledge of Irish labour and of Irish people in labour history abroad and labour history in general; the appreciation of the importance of labour history in the educational curriculum; and the preservation of all records and reminiscences, oral and written, relating to the current and past experiences of the Irish working class and its organisations’.
