Local women of the last century who made history

Gone But Not Forgotten tells the story of some of the women who fought for Irish Independence from the area of south Dublin, which today is known as Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. The women profiled here were judges, writers, educators, social activists, freedom fighters, spies, county council officials and politicians. These women contributed to the Irish fight for independence during the Revolutionary years – during the 1916 Rising, War of Independence and Civil War. At that time it was both ‘unladylike’ and 'disreputable’ to be involved in such activities.
