Lecturer Dr Michelle Sheehy Skeffington will give an illustrated talk on her famous grandparents Hanna and Francis Sheehy Skeffington at a special talk in Enniscorthy Library on Thursday night at 7 p.m. Co-founder of the Irish Women’s franchise, Hana was twice jailed for suffrage action and Frank covered all aspects of the movement in the suffrage newspaper, The Irish Citizen, which he co-founded with James Cousins. After Frank’s murder by a British Officer during Easter Week 1916, Hanna escaped to the US for 18 months telling her pacifist husband’s tragic story and advocating Irish Independence. She was the only Irish activist to meet with President Woodrow Wilson. This fascinating story will be recounted at the library on Thursday night.
