Labor and Dignity - James Connolly in America - May 3

The Consulate General of Ireland and the Irish Immigration Center are delighted to present a special exhibition on the life of the Irish patriot and union activist, James Connolly.

The exhibit focuses on the eight years Connolly spent in America (1902-1910) and how his experiences here influenced his actions during the Dublin Lockout of 1913 and shaped his view that the fight for Irish nationalism was inseparable from the battle for the rights of all workers. 

We're delighted to partner with the American Catholic Historical Society to present this exhibition.

Please join us for this special event and check out the wonderful headquarters of America's oldest Catholic historical organization at the same time.
