Hundreds of people gathered in Dublin today to welcome the arrival of a ship taking part in a centenary re-enactment of a key moment of the lock out.

The event was held to commemorate the voyage of the SS Hare.

The SS Hare brought food parcels from Liverpool to striking workers and their families in 1913.

The ship used in today's re-enactment carried Irish and UK trade union representatives, and representatives of the families of Jim Larkin and James Connolly.

Today's event also saw the handing over of a cheque by the 1913 Lockout Commemoration Committee to Crumlin Children's Hospital to pay for parent's facilities in the new cardiac ward.

Members of Dublin Dockers Preservation society read out the names of dockers present during the original unloading of SS Hare's cargo.
