Pause for a while my friends and listen to what I’m going to tell to
you about the events in Dublin City and the girls of the IDATU Dunne’s
stores branch in Henry street was where the trouble first began that
led to the strike, the famous strike, of ten young women and one young
man

At the union conference that year they said “we will not compromise
with Apartheid” and they voted to boycott all South African
merchandise they said “we’ll stick by resolution” ten young women and
one young man.

Mary Manning, from Kilmainham, a twenty one year old cashier was put
to the test the very next morning and she spoke up loud and clear “no
I’m afraid, I cannot serve you, them grapefruit’s South African and
some of us here are opposed to apartheid” ten young women and one
young man

There was a hell of a hullaballoo, with moans and shouts and angry
cries the bosses foaming at the mouth and the suits running round like
blue-arsed flies “you’ll sell that fruit or be suspended, we’ll
tolerate no union ban” little did they understand the will of ten
young women and one young man

Mary Manning got the push, that girl of independent mind and ten of
her workmates went with her and joined her on the picket line for days
and weeks and months they stood there, held their nerve and kept the
ban showing the will and determination of ten young women and one
young man

So here’s to the girls of Dublin City who stretched their hands across
the sea and gave the world a perfect lesson in worker solidarity
here’s to the folk that heed the boycott, won’t buy Cape and spurn
outspan
Ten young women and one young man!
