This updated version of "No Ordinary Women: Irish Female Activists in the Revolutionary Years 1900-1923" includes a new foreword and ninety biographies of female activists, including unsung heroes like Molly O' Reilly, who hoisted the flag over Liberty Hall in April 1916 at the age of fifteen. The girls and women who became involved in the struggle for Ireland's freedom fought side by side with their male comrades-in-arms. Their indomitable spirits overcame conflict, capture, harsh prison conditions, hunger strikes and huge personal losses. With photographs from personal and family collections, "No Ordinary Women" also lists the female revolutionaries imprisoned after the Rising or arrested during the Civil War. The author, Sinéad McCoole is a historian, curator and an acknowledged expert on the decade of centenaries.
