Linda Kearns
A Revolutionary Irish Woman

Proinnsíos Duigneáin

€15.00 EUR

Linda Kearns is representative of a number of women of the first half of the 20th century who played significant but largely unacknowledged roles in the 1916-1921 period in Ireland and who later were active in trying to influence the direction of politics in the fledgling state.

She is recognised for her involvement in the War of Independence and for her subsequent capture, imprisonment and daring escape from Mountjoy Prison in 1921.

Not as well known was her lifelong mission to achieve greater rights for women in general and for nurses in particular. Moreover her work as a promoter of native industry had gone largely unrecorded.

This work investigates the many faceted career of this charismatic woman.
