Product description


a fun and useful reference work


written in a lively and accessible style


would recommend this book to schools especially as a supplement to the history curriculum where the teaching of women's history could be much improved. It would make a great starting point for research for Leaving Certificate students


'Broderick's prose is simple and accessible ... and her fascination with her two favourite subjects - Irish history and women's studies - jumps out from every page'

(Sunday Business Post Sunday Business Post)

'A rollicking read'

(Books Ireland Books Ireland)

'Before reading this I hadn't heard of half the women, now I will dip into this book to read again and again about the remarkable women who helped to shape Éire'

(Women's News)

'Marian Broderick should take a bow for resurrecting an eclectic body of Irish women's history -- the good, the bad and the ugly, as well as the international beauties'

(Justine McCarthy - Irish Independent Irish Independent)

'After reading this book, one can never again ignore the role of Irishwomen'

(Dublin Historical Record Dublin Historical Record)

'relieves what historian Margaret Ward has called our "collective amnesia" about women's place ... enjoyable'


'A rollicking read'

(Books Ireland)


This is a collection of over 70 biographies detailing the lives and achievements of extraordinary women from Ireland's past. Ireland's story contains the hidden lives of female artists, civil rights activists, healers, courtesans, record-breakers, and business women among others. Women of Ireland included range from the third century, Queen Maeve, right up to the early 1990s and Veronica Guerin. All of the women detailed here are dead, but each has left a legacy to mark her out.
