The S.S. Hare had been one of Larkin’s ‘food ships’, bringing food and other necessities from Britain for families of striking workers during the 1913 Lockout.

The ship was travelling from Manchester to Dublin when she was sunk by a German U-Boat with the loss of twelve lives.

The plaque was unveiled on 30th September 2017 by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Michael Mac Donncha.
