Here is a short clip from an interview between Mick O’Reilly and Sam Nolan.
So far we have filmed two sessions with Sam, each two hours long.
We’re hoping to conduct at least three more interviews with Sam over the next month or so.
In this short five-minute clip, Sam talks about trade unionism in Dublin in the 1940s: first, his experience with the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers (ASW); and second, his opinion of the ITGWU in response to a question from myself.
As with the Joe Deasy clip, the sound and picture still need work, so this is just to give a flavour of what we hope will be a series of documentaries on Irish labour and working class history.
