'Life and crime in the city before the Rising’ - Pádraig Yeates, SIPTU

Using recently discovered records from the Dublin Metropolitan Police that cover the period before the Rising, Yeates will look at how the police coped with crime and disorder in the city before the outbreak of the Easter Rising. This should be a fascinating talk outlining brand new research on the lives of ordinary men and women, and the police authorities, in the decade before the Rising..

Pádraig Yeates is a journalist, publicist and trade union activist. He is a distinguished social and labour historian and the author of Lockout, the standard work on the great 1913 labour dispute.

He is also author of the acclaimed A City in Wartime and A City in Turmoil; the third book in the series, A City in Civil War, which was published in 2015. 

All lectures will be at 7pm in the Milestone Gallery, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.

This event is organised by Glasnevin Trust as part of their Winter Lecture Series; 1916: Rebellion, War and Commemoration in Ireland and Beyond.
