Blast from the past time, and with last weeks USI walkabout in the city centre I thought I’d scan up an article dealing with the Irish student movement from Workers Republic, published by The League for a Workers Republic.
The article was written by Carol Coulter and she writes of the various student groupings active in Irish colleges and univiersites at the time, for example The Internationalists who sprung up at Trinity College Dublin and the Students For Democratic Action which emerged out of University College Dublin.
There is great information on the League for a Workers Republic to be found on Cedar Lounge, while Conor McCabe of Dublin Opinion has written a wonderful piece on The Internationalists including some great scanned publications.
What was the Irish student movement like before Gary Redmond? Read it and see.
