Solidarity – The Dockers of Dublin Port

Solidarity – The Dockers of Dublin Port

Did you get to see our Solidarity exhibition in Dublin Port? The colourful exhibition was made possible with the support of Dublin Port Company and the wonderful people behind the Dublin Dock Workers Preservation Society.

The first-ever exhibition at the newly refurbished Substation in Dublin Port, Solidarity provided a poignant glimpse into the lives of the dockers, a vibrant and resilient community that is integral to the history of Dublin Port.

Lord Mayor Daithí de Róiste officially launched the exhibition and commented on its significance, stating: “The dockers of Dublin Port have played a crucial role in shaping the city’s history. ‘Solidarity’ is a tribute to their enduring spirit and a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who toiled on the docks. This exhibition not only preserves their legacy but also invites us to reflect on the vibrant tapestry of Dublin’s industrial heritage. I would like to congratulate Dublin Port Company and the Little Museum of Dublin for coming together to put on such a wonderful exhibition.”
