New Irish Labour History Society Website

21st September 2022

Welcome to the brand new Irish Labour History Society (ILHS) website! The site launched in September 2022, following receipt of a grant from the  Heritage Council under the Community Heritage Grants Scheme 2022.

The new website aims to enhance access to the unique collections held in our premises in Beggars Bush, Dublin through making digitised material from our collections available. Some of these have been added already under ‘Digital Collections’  including

  • Post Office Workers Union Handbills relating to the 1922 Strike
  • Irish Trade Union Congress and Labour Party Minute Book, 1917-1921.
  • Irish Citizen Army Minute Book, February 1919-September 1920.

Further content will be added in the coming weeks and months, with other sections of the website to be updated also.

The support of members of the Society and from the wider trade union movement throughout this project is very much appreciated.
