Daughters and heroes
What if you lifted the lid on the history of women in a small Irish town over the course of 100 years? What would you find? A group of women in Cahir, Co Tipperary did just that and collected their tales into a book, Daughters of Dún Iascaigh, to celebrate the centenary of Irish women voting for the first time, in 1918. The inspiring and varied stories take in women who fought in wars at home and abroad, were part of the suffrage movement, Titanic survivors ( Kate McCarthy, left, with her husband John Croke) and the first white woman to attend a Navajo Pow Wow. The launch is on Friday, December 7th at 8pm in Cahir House Hotel. Proceeds are being donated to Cahir’s Society of St Vincent de Paul for programmes assisting women and children.
