Spies, snipers, couriers, gun-runners, medics, women played a major role in the fight for Ireland’s freedom, risking loss of life and family for a cause to which they were totally committed.

This book highlights a time when vast numbers of Irish women were politicized and imprisoned for their beliefs, with a special emphasis on one prison, Kilmainham Gaol.

Some were married with children, others widowed and some mere schoolchildren.
These are hidden stories that vividly recreate the characters, personalities and courage of Ireland’s revolutionary women
