A re-enactment takes place in Dublin of the 1913 lockout, when city tram workers were denied the right to join a union.

People took on the roles of the Dublin Metropolitan police, aggrieved workers, while union leader Big Jim Larkin, was played by actor Jer O'Leary.

Independent TD Tony Gregory, Labour TD Joe Costello, and Sinn Féin Councillor Christy Burke all played the parts of workers who clashed with the Metropolitan police in Dublin in 1913. 

The 1913 lockout largely became a battle of wills between employer William Martin Murphy and union leader Jim Larkin.

When trade unionist Jim Larkin spoke at a meeting at Sackville Street (now O'Connell Street) in Dublin, the local police baton charged those attending and in later clashes a number of protesters were killed.

The mission that I have come to preach is the divine mission of discontent.

Actor Jer O'Leary describes Larkin as one of the greatest orators that ever lived. 

The commemorations could not take place on O'Connell Street due to ongoing Luas works.
