The Irish and Labor Struggles

In the spirit of St Patricks Day I have assembled a few books on the Irish and Labor Struggles.

1. Lockout: Dublin 1913

2. James Connolly and the Irish Left

3. Rebels

4. In Transit: The Transport Workers Union in New York City, 1933-1966

The Transit Workers Union in NY was started by quite a few Irish exiles with Mike Quill being the most prolific. Read a tribute to Quill here.

5. The Transport Workers Union of America: The Irish connection

Any Others?
