Local historian Joe Mooney (founding member of the East Wall History Group and the Sean O'Casey Festival) will outline the history of the Dublin Port area, recall some heroes & villains of earlier eras and detail the local events during the Decade of Centenary years, including the many links with the attack on Custom House. 

"The old spot by the River – Liberty Hall, Custom House and the Dublin Dockland rebels".

Standing beside Custom House in Beresford Place stands the statue of James Connolly, bearing the quote " The cause of labour is the cause of Ireland , the cause of Ireland is the cause of labour" . It was an ideal embraced by the workers of the nearby Docklands, where the twin strands of militant trade unionism and the national movement would take root, and inspire a community to play a full role in the events of the revolutionary era.
