The case against Larkin and others relates to 1908-9, when Larkin founded the Irish Transport and General Workers Union, having been expelled by the British-based National Union of Dock Labourers. It was alleged that Larkin and his colleagues had collected subscriptions in Cork intended for the Dock Labourers Union and had applied them without authority to the new Irish union. The charge was probably inspired by Larkin's enemies. The notebooks include temporary newscuttings of the court evidence, extracts from the Larceny Act, detailed notes probably of evidence given in court, and list of questions probably intended for use in court.
Physical description: 2 notebooks.
