About this event

This is the fourth of eight talks in a webinar series on Dublin city's Water Heritage produced in partnership with Dublin City Heritage Office and LAWPRO. A newly recorded talk will be released each day during Heritage Week exploring a different aspect of Water Heritage.

In this fourth talk, Dr Aileen O’Carroll will talk about the history of the dockers and their deep-woven connection to the city. 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.

When you register, you will receive a link to the Vimeo page where all the talks will be uploaded, and you will receive a direct link to this talk on the day its released.
