Thanks Colm McDermott
But they’re determined, in their way,
By forces beyond their control,
To grind you down each live-long day,
Then count the pennies that they stole.
Class hands on misery to class,
This our clear and certain fate,
You’re stuck there in your huddled mass,
Till one big union makes us great.

A bearded Jim Larkin (in a dress coat borrowed from Count Markevicz).
From University College Cork:
He entered William Martin Murphy’s Imperial Hotel in disguise and appeared on the balcony to the crowds below, before being arrested. What used to be the hotel, now forms part of Clerys Department store.
