Dr Gerard Hanley Publishes New Book
Congratulations to Dr Gerard Hanley, a research fellow in the School of History and Geography, on the publication of his new book, Workers, Politics and Labour Relations in Independent Ireland, 1922-46 (Four Courts Press, 2024).
This book assesses the position of workers, trade unionism and labour relations from the foundation of the Irish Free State to the establishment of the Labour Court under the Industrial Relations Act 1946. This is the first comprehensive examination of labour relations, in the context of political, social, and economic developments during the early decades of Irish independence.
