  • Jim Larkin (1874-1947) is remembered in the main thoroughfare of Dublin for your dedication to the rights of workers. He was an Irish trade union leader and Socialist activist, who began working as a child and became a full-time Union Organizer in 1905. The statue of "Big Jim" is on O'Connell Street, and when it was built was much criticised for having the arms stretched, encouraging workers to rise up.

  • Iconic statue commemorating 'Big Jim' Larkin of 1913 Lockout fame. His most historic speech was given from the balcony of the adjacent Clery's department store. Ironic, that a century later Clery's own workers would themselves be victims of a lockout.
  • Iconic statue who was founder of worker union of Ireland
  • Look for the bullet holes.
