Larkin refers to the Shannon coal lock-out dispute of 1925, claiming that their provision of affordable coal to the poor of Dublin "taught the employers of Dublin the old spirit of militant unionism is not dead in this country". He also claims that the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union provided "scab" labour, under direction of the Government, during the lock-out.
