Fintan Patrick Walsh caricature


The watersiders and their supporters condemned Federation of Labour strongman Fintan Patrick Walsh as a rat who betrayed the workers' cause. This cleverly designed caricature was taken from a linocut made during the waterfront lockout of 1951.


From D. Parker, 'Scoundrel times at the Film Unit', Illusions, 7, 1988, pp. 4–8
