A Biographic Dictionary
"A quite marvellous publication and a textbook
for us all."
Women of Ireland was inspired by Mary Robinson, first woman President of Ireland and now the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, who said: "As a woman I want women who have felt themselves outside history to be written back into history."

It documents the rich and varied contributions women have made to the shaping of Irish history and culture.
