The Dublin Dock Workers Preservation Society was set up just over a year ago. The group is made up of ex-dock workers and people interested in preserving the history of Dublin Port. They started by collecting old photographs and are delighted to report that their collection has broken through the 1,000 mark.
The Five Lamps Arts Festival are hosting this wonderful exhibition which will bring back memories to many local people of the Docks where they or their families worked for generations. The festival would like to support the Dockers in their search for a permanent museum in the area to document the history of the life of the Docks in times past.
