What was life like 100 years ago?

1913 is remembered as the year of the Lockout. But how much more do you know about the Ireland of 1913?

We look at 1913 and at the Lockout in an exclusive supplement FREE inside Monday's Irish Independent. The pull-out paints a picture of everyday life in Dublin and the rest of the country in 1913.

In the tenements, most families lived in just one room. Hunger and disease were part of everyday life. Contributors include Gary Granville, Professor of Education in the National College of Art and Design, and social historian Padraig Yeates, author of 'Lockout'.

The supplement includes many rarely seen photographs showing everyday life at the time. The accompanying wall chart published with Tuesday's Irish Independent will encourage all to find where their families were in 1913, with a guide to researching and filling in a family tree.
