Solidarity – The Dockers of Dublin Port

The Dockers of Dublin Port is a new exhibition curated by The Little Museum of Dublin. Running for three months from Thursday to Sunday 11:30am to 3:30pm, it is to be presented in the newly refurbished Substation building on Alexandra Road. Solidarity charts the story of one of Irelandā€™s most fascinating industrial subcultures: the dockers. Their story is one of hardship but also one of humour and resilience.

The exhibition will explore the strong sense of tradition that dockers had that was often grounded in family ties. Many dockers had a long family history and would often follow in the footsteps of family members who came before them. They entered into a life of physically demanding and unpredictable work.

The event will investigate multiple aspects of the dockersā€™ lives including dockerā€™s reads, the button, the tools of the trade and the role of cranes. The exhibition will also explore both the social side of a dockerā€™s life and the dangers they faced every day on the docks.

Admission is free of charge for everyone.
