Members of the Irish Women Workers' Union on the steps of Liberty Hall

We first posted this photo back in June 2011. I'm upcycling it now because of this suggestion...

 

guliolopez has suggested:

"Given today's announcement [that Dublin's newest bridge is to be named after Rosie Hackett] it might be interesting to re-open this one (or other similar shots) to identify some of the other people in the photo. I suggest this because, even the campaigners to name the bridge after Rosie Hackett seem unsure of whether/which lady she might be in these photos. (There are photos in her later years, but no apparent confirmed ones contemporary to the IWWU foundation, lockout, etc). In this one we undoubtedly see Delia Larkin seated/front/centre. And it seems likely that Rosie Hackett, Kathleen Lynn, and other founder members are also in these photos. But where? (Similar "searches" are ongoing elsewhere too - with pretty limited success). Worth reopening?".

 

Date: Circa 1914
