'The great are only great because we are on out knees. Let us rise!'
James Larkin was an Irish trades union leader, born in Liverpool in 1875.
In 1907 he moved to Belfast, starting up not only the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union but also the Irish Labour Party and.....later.......the Workers' Union of Ireland.
There's a statue of Larkin on O'Connell street in Dublin but I found this one tucked away in a narrow alleyway off Donegall Street, in Belfast's Cathedral quarter.
The alley is called 'Donegall Street Place', under an archway on the right as you walk towards the cathedral. Look up on the alley wall for the name sign.
Address: Donegall Street Place, city centre, Belfast
Directions: An alley which runs off Donegall street in the Cathedral quarter
