18 December 2014: Commemoration of the death of Alicia Brady, Dublin 2

Alicia Brady copyOn Thursday 18 December 2014 a ceremony took place in Dublin to mark the anniversary of the death in 1913 of Alicia Brady. A member of the Irish Women Workers’ Union, Alicia was among the last people to die as a result of the social conflict surrounding the 1913 Lockout, having being hit by a ricochet from a revolver fired by a strike-breaker in December 1913.

A wreath was laid at 1pm on Thursday 18 December in Mark Street, Dublin 2. This was followed by an event in the Pearse Centre on Pearse Street addressed by Robert Ballabh and Dr. Brian Hanley. The event was organised by SIPTU and the Young Workers Network.
