Jim Larkin (1874-1947) is remembered on Dublin's main thoroughfare for his dedication to worker's rights. In 1909 Jim Larkin founded the Irish Transport & General Worker?s Union catering for unskilled workers such as carters, dockers, labourers, and factory hands, who lived in conditions of great misery in the slums of Dublin, then probably among the worst in Europe. By 1913 his union had over 10,000 members and had its headquarters in Liberty Hall.
