      Unfortunately I would imagine suicide just wasn’t reported as such in 1911. Didn’t go down too well with the church.

      TB is still very common in the UK and Ireland. It just kills far fewer people these days. The days of grey faced people isolated in cold places are long gone

    So while the upper classes were poncing around Dublin declaring independence the rest of Ireland was living in abject poverty!
    Hurrah to the rebels! Maybe they should have scrapped their “revolution” and used some of their vast wealth to help the tenement dwellers.

    1916, let’s celebrate that.

    In 1911 the work place was very different
    From farming to making biscuits
    From milling grain, to building ships
    Even if you were a clerk
    Manpower numbers were significantly different
