The first thing I did while researching my project was to look for sources as a result of that I joined my local library. That proved unsuccessful as they had no books or articles relating to my research topic. However during my research on-line I found many sources which referred to the Limerick Soviet. Liam Cahill’s book ‘Forgotten Revolution- The Limerick Soviet’ was free on the internet and therefore I didn’t have to obtain a copy. Although all the newspaper articles and Cahill’s book were helpful I was disappointed that there is only one book written specifically on the subject. After I had all my information and had my outline plan proceeded to write my extended essay. While researching the Limerick Soviet I have gained experience in researching skills. It gave me an insight into the meaning of historical phrases that I did not previously understand . Martial Law. Overall form my project I have gained a greater understanding of the Limerick Soviet, the role of the British Military Authorities and gave me a greater insight into the running of workers unions such as the ITGWU in Ireland.
