Editorial Reviews

James Doan
...it covers a whole spectrum, from women in folktales and ballads about the rebellion, to historical accounts of Catholic and Protestant women in the events of that year, to evidence in courts martial and subsequent narratives by female survivors...Though most of these accounts focus on women in supporting roles - as mother, sister or sweetheart of United Irishman - their involvement in all aspects of the rising has been reclaimed in this fine collection of essays.
Irish Literary Supplement
Booknews
Brings new light to bear on the role of women in the 1798 Irish rebellion, treating women not only as symbols and victims, but as activists and combatants in a political cause. Most chapters profile the lives and activities of revolutionaries, feminists, and activists of the time. Topics include United Irish images of women, female evidences in courts martial convened to suppress the 1798 rebellion, and the women of 1798 in folk memory and ballads. Keogh lectures in the history department at Dublin City University. Furlong is president of the Wexford Historical Society. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
