Details

Northern Ireland’s economy was decimated in the late 1920s, with unemployment rising to 40 per cent and those out of work forced to sign on for Outdoor Relief, a pittance given in return for manual labour. Mitchell gives a complete account of ‘relief’ programmes in the North, the reaction of the unemployed in the Outdoor Relief Strike and the ensuing riots – a show of working-class unity in a city usually associated with sectarian violence.
