Dublin Metropolitan Police Proclamation banning meeting at Sackville Street during the 1913 Lockout.
Issued by E.G. Swifte, Chief Divisional Magistrate, Dublin Metropolitan Police District on 29 August 1913 banning a meeting at Sackville Street or its neighbourhood on 31st August, 1913 due to the fact that “...such meeting or assemblage is seditious and that the said meeting or assemblage would cause terror and alarm to, and dissension between, his Majesty’s subjects, and would be an unlawful assembly”.
History tells us such warnings fell upon deaf ears as evidenced in 1916 when the Easter Rising took place on this very street.
