For the past couple of months, myself and Mick O’Reilly (former Irish regional secretary ATGWU) have been conducting a series of interviews with veteran Irish left activists, including Sam Nolan, Des Brannigan, and Joe Deasy. It is hoped that these interviews will be broadcast on DCTV in the near future. In the meantime, here is a short clip of Joe Deasy talking about his involvement with the Inchicore Co-op of the 1940s/50s. I have already posted an audio recording of this segment, but I’ve started work on the editing of the video itself, and so this is just a little extract. As you’ll see and hear, the sound and vision still needs a bit of work, but hopefully we’ll get there soon enough.
For more on Joe Deasy, here is a link to a piece based on Brian Kenny’s recent pamphlet.
