28 pictures from today's 1913 Lockout commemoration celebrations

Hundreds of people lined O’Connell Street to watch a reenactment of the Dublin Metropolitan Police baton-charging crowds on ‘Bloody Sunday’.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL D Higgins lead the State commemoration of the 1913 Lockout in Dublin city centre earlier, laying a wreath at Jim Larkin’s statue on O’Connell Street before a minute’s silence.

Hundreds of people lined O’Connell Street to watch a reenactment of the Dublin Metropolitan Police baton-charging crowds on ‘Bloody Sunday’ 100 years ago.

The commemoration of Ireland’s largest-ever industrial dispute included participants in period dress and Jim Larkin’s famous speech from a hotel window.

Here are 28 pictures from today’s event:
