To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of James Connolly, the single most significant revolutionary thinker in Irish history, Manchester Momentum are delighted to be welcoming Dublin historian Donal Fallon to discuss Connolly's political career and contribution to Irish republican and socialist thought.
Born in Edinburgh's Cowgate district, Connolly's life brought him into contact with organisations like the Independent Labour Party and Industrial Workers of the World in both Britain and the United States. In Dublin, he was central to both the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union and the Irish Citizen Army. In 1912, he and James Larkin founded the Irish Labour Party and would later go on to be key figures in the 1916 Easter Rising.
