a documentary produced by Frameworks Films of Cork, Ireland with the collaborative support of the Limerick Council of Trade Unions

The Limerick Soviet tells the story of a revolution on the streets of Limerick, Ireland in April 1919 when the first soviet in Ireland was declared. It occurred as workers in the city refused the imposition of martial law in Limerick, which had been declared  by the police and Brits following the police murder of a trade unionist and IRA member. This hard-line approach by the British authorities backfired and resulted in Limerick workers calling of a general strike and for control of the city to be taken by the workers. The workers then held the city for twelve days before the soviet was broken by the occupying Brit military.
