74 Is this view of trade union activity in the years before the First World War exaggerated? How relevant were these developments within the English trade unions to Ireland? How important was Syndicalism, the enfant terrible of the trade union movement, in these years? All three cities, to different degrees, saw these changes and can provide some answers. The boom in the British economy in the last few years before the First World War greatly benefited the city of Bristol. The demand for labour was at a peak as Evelyn Tivy was able to report in 1914 under the heading of 'Girl Labour in Bristol'.

Many trade unionists in this period would have been horrified if accused of being socialists. Co-operators were not necessarily supporters of either trade unionism or radical reform and were sometimes poor employers. Many pacifists and supporters of female suffrage had no sympathy with the 'labour movement'. However, links did exist between these groups both in terms of personnel and ideas. Thus it is possible to discuss these groups within the terms of a 'wider labour movement' although many contemporary observers would have rejected such a concept.

In the case of both the Cambrian and Liverpool strikes the syndicalists appear to have enjoyed considerable influence. 96 However in both cases only a tiny number of committed members were involved in both areas and the bulk of the strikers were less radical in their politics or aspirations. Holton points out that there were only about fifty committed syndicalists operating in either Liverpool or South Wales and that maintaining militancy was extremely difficult without overt social or industrial conflict.
