Sunday’s Independent Easter Commemoration Howth.

Asgard & Seán Heuston Society members lay wreath on behalf of the 1916 Societies on the grave of Óglach Jack Moore, IRA and Nelly Moore, Cumann Na mBan (Howth Branch), – at Howth.

Families of those from the Howth, Sutton and Baldoyle area who played their part in the struggle from Irish freedom gather in Howth for a wreath-laying ceremony at the graveside of Óglach Pearse McLoughlin.

Marie Drummond and Nello Waldron, daughters of Óglach Jack Moore, IRA and Nelly Moore, Cumann Na mBan (Howth Branch), also present are Pádraig Drummond, Riobeard Drummond, Nathan Drummond.

Pearse McLoughlin was a strong dedicated and disciplined Republican his entire life, having served 12 years in England as an IRA Volunteer during the 1940 and 50’s for his cause. Pearce’s family were involved in the struggle for Irish freedom from day one and were involved in the Kilcoole gunrunning of 1914.

Pearse McLoughlin was the first to reveal the role played by Howth fishermen in the Kilcoole gun-running. He wrote: “Eoin MacNeill – a prominent member of the Irish Volunteers – lived in Howth at that time and the task of collecting the arms from the yacht Chota was assigned to MacNeill to organise. MacNeill approached the owner of a local fishing boat – Peter McLoughlin – and requested his co-operation. Enthusiastic co-operation was assured by Peter, who owned a 35-foot fishing boat called the Nugget. This vessel was the first Howth fishing boat to be fitted with an engine.

“On the night the Chota was due at a pre-arranged position outside the Kish Bank, the Nugget sailed from Howth crewed by three brothers of Peter, James who was skipper, Nicholas, and William, and Michael Moore. Also on board were a number of MacNeill’s men to supervise the transfer of weapons. On the voyage to the Kish Bank, a stowaway was discovered. He was a young schoolboy whose name was Edward Moore.

“The arms were safely transferred to the Nugget by the fishermen and landed on Kilcoole Strand before dawn, where they were taken in charge by Cathal Bruagha and Sean T.O’Kelly with a unit of Volunteers. The boat was taken out to sea then and a day’s fishing was done before it returned to Howth.” 

Also, remember on the day were Óglach Jack Moore, Fianna Éireann and later IRA “H” Coy, 2nd Battallion, Dublin Brigade, and his wife Nelly Moore, Cumann Na mBan, Howth Branch.

‘Twas the feast of Saint Patrick
By the dawn of the day;
The hills of Tirconnaill
Stood sombre and grey;
When the first light of morning
Illumined the sky,
Four brave Irish soldiers
Were led forth to die.

Three left their loved homes
In Kerry’s green vales,
And one came from Derry
To fight for the Gael.
But instead of true friends,
They met traitor and foe
And uncoffined were laid
In the woods of Drumboe.

Four Republican soldiers
Were dragged from their cells
Where for months they had suffered
Wild torments like hell’s.
No mercy they asked
From their pitiless foe
And no mercy was shown
by the thugs at Drumboe.

The church bells rang out
In the clear morning air
To summon the faithful
To penance and prayer,
When a crash from the woodlands
Struck terror and woe
‘Twas the death knell of Daly
Shot dead at Drumboe.

Let Tirconaill ne’er boast
Of her honour and fame;
All the waters of Finn Could not wash out her shame;
While the Finn and the Swilly
Continue to flow,
That stain will remain on
The woods of Drumboe.

Jim Larkin and the 1913 Lockout!.

image
Jim Larkin.

Dublin 10th Novermber 1915 – A serious new dispute between dockers and employers in now threating to end in renewed strike action in Dublin.

The City of Dublin Company has refused the demands of dockers for wage increases and the response from the Carters is to decline to handle material from the company’s boats.
The Employer’s Federation met to discuss the question yesterday and have recommended that the Carters be locked out.
The employment of up to 3,000 men is at issue in the dispute, with negotiations now being undertaken to seek a resolution.

image
A new Lockout in Dublin? A loading wharf on the Liffey. All work along the quays has stalled as a result of his new dispute.

The threatened lockout comes as reports from Amercia claim that Jim Larkin, the leading personality of the 1913 Lockout, is ‘down on his luck’. Larkin has ended up in dispute with certain sections of Irish America, leading him to be described in one paper as a ‘base, intolerant, perverted, fuming, raving, ranting hypocrite’.

‘13% of people in North of Ireland want united Ireland in short to medium term’, survey suggests – BBC News

Don’t believe BBC propaganda open your eyes to the truth….

Who did they include in the interveiw?

Was it carried out in a Nationalist/Republican area or a Protestant/Loyalist area etc, etc etc…..

OR WAS IT CARRIED OUT AT ALL??

Christina ‘Dina’ Hunter was born in 1901. At the time the Hunter family were living in a one room tenement at number 7 McGuinness Court.

Her father was a coach painter, while her mother, Sarah was a house kepper. They already had a two-year-old son John. They would later move to number 25 Townsend Street, another one room tenement, and the family would expand to include Sarah, Liziebeth and Jane Frances.
