In this highly and fas­ci­nat­ing lec­ture Fran­cis Devine traced the ori­gins and high­lighs of the trade union move­ment in Ire­land in­ter­link­ing na­tional events and de­vel­op­ments with those talk­ing place in County Wick­low.

In the course of this pre­sen­ta­tion he out­lined the de­vel­op­ment and growth of coun­try branches and their rise and fall and reemer­gence in light of na­tional de­vel­op­ments. He also spoke on some of the many trade union of­fi­cials who had associated with Bray and County Wick­low and their con­tri­bu­tions to the na­tional trade union move­ment and trade union­ism.
