Strumpet City

James Plunkett

“Set during the lockout in 1913, it covers every class, situation and attitude of the Irish people and some English at that time.”

Aisling O'Reilly , Islandbridge

Strumpet City depicts a pivotal event in Irish social history – the mass lockout of trade unionists by employers in 1913 – and has a wonderfully memorable cast of characters – not least the city itself.
