Liam Cahill is an authority on the Limerick Soviet which was a strike that lasted from 15 to 27 April 1919. It was organised by the Limerick Trades and Labour Council, as a protest against the British Army declaring a ‘Special Military Area’, which covered most of Limerick. The soviet ran the city for the period, printed its own money and organised food supplies.
