The Imperial Hotel was destroyed by shells from the British gunboat Helga during the 1916 Rising. The hotel was built in 1837, and the site is now occupied by part of the Clery's Department Store building. Jim Larkin was arrested in 1913 after sneaking into the Imperial Hotel in disguise to give a banned speech to workers gathered below on Sackville St. (now O'Connell St.) - a coup against the authorities, and also against William Martin Murphy, leader of the Dublin employers in The Lockout of 1913, and one of the hotel's owners.
