The Workers’ Republic
6 Nov. 1915 (Vol. 1, No. 24)
Newspaper

Following the suppression by the government in 1915 of the ‘Irish Worker’ newspaper, James Connolly re-launched the weekly print ‘The Workers’ Republic’. The paper was edited by Connolly himself and printed at offices in Liberty Hall using the same Double Crown Wharfdale printer which was later used to print to 1916 Proclamation. Connolly’s newspaper would play an important role in providing coverage of Irish Volunteer news and events. The first issue of the paper was printed on 29 May 1915. The paper later included extensive coverage of the trade union militia, the Irish Citizen Army, with training notes on a wide variety of military topics from issue to issue. The last appearance of ‘The Worker Republic’ was on 22 April 1916, two days before the commencement of the Easter Rising.
