90th Anniversary of the Limerick Soviet

As my “Subversive Day in History,” for today, the Limerick General Strike that lead to a Soviet Council in the Irish City commemorated its 90th anniversary. My audio columns only allow for one minute to synthesize and compress key historical points, but this instance of history, to which I was previously unaware of, was so interesting that luckily I came across this video on youtube that is able to divulge further.  Liam Cahill, who I cited, is among the featured speakers in this seven minute exploration of the Limerick Soviet that is definitely worth checking out.
