Working Lives of Dublin’s Deep-Sea Port
Author: Aileen O’Carroll,Don Bennett
Publisher: Merrion Press
As a port city, Dublin owes much to the labourers who strove against the heavy-duty tide of imports and exports; a league of thousands who were hired on a day-to-day basis for generations, defining the bustle of Dublin city centre – a cornerstone of the urban industrial working class in Ireland. The Dublin Docker is a sumptuously illustrated history that determines the dockers’ and stevedores’ importance as an industrial subculture within the Dublin that they navigated. The authors excavated the archive of the Dublin Dockworkers Preservation Society to discover a wealth of photographs, spanning the mid-nineteenth century to the 1970s, that capture the dockers’ arduous labour and the energy of Dublin port. These evocative images bring this beautifully designed social history to life, complementing the inimitable voices revealed in interviews with the dockers themselves. How they negotiated working hours and pay, the changes that came with epochal events – the Dublin Lockout, the First World War, the Easter Rising and War of Independence – and the innumerable myths and ‘dark stories’ that shrouded their image: The Dublin Docker is a history of the dockers and their deep-woven connection to the city.
The Bryant and May Matchwomen and their Place in History
Author: Louise Raw
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
In July 1888, fourteen hundred women and girls employed by the matchmakers Bryant and May walked out of their East End factory and into the history books. Louise Raw gives us a challenging new interpretation of events proving that the women themselves, not celebrity socialists like Annie Besant, began it. She provides unequivocal evidence to show that the matchwomen greatly influenced the Dock Strike of 1889, which until now was thought to be the key event of new unionism, and repositions them as the mothers of the modern labour movement. Returning to the stories of the women themselves, and by interviewing their relatives today, Raw is able to construct a new history which challenges existing accounts of the strike itself and radically alters the accepted history of the labour movement in Britain.

Letter to my Daughter is an enchanting book about growing up and remembering the vanished scenes of childhood. In a letter to his then 17-year-old daughter Jessica, Graham Little draws an intimate portrait of himself as a small boy in Northern Ireland in the 1940s. The pleasures and traumas of domestic life, seen through the eyes of a child, are portrayed with unforgettable vividness. Graham Little’s story is also about migrating. In 1948, when he was nine, his family moved to England. Then he encountered the glamour of his grandfather’s club in the West End, pea-soup fogs, and postwar prep schools that taught spelling as a political virtue. But his father was soon looking for another fresh start, and the 15-year-old boy found himself playing deck-tennis and falling in love on a P&O liner steaming to Australia, where he would learn the manners of a new country. Written in an under-stated and yet deeply evocative prose, Letter to my Daughter reclaims a lost world and makes it our world, too.
