history and heritage |
Monday March 24, 2014 20:58 by Sharon. - Individual.
Seminar and booklaunch will be held on Saturday 29th March 2014.
Venue - Wynn's Hotel , Middle Abbey Street , Dublin city centre , from 11.30am to 5pm. The new book ' 100 Years Defending The Republic' will be launched at 2pm, at this event.
Saturday 29th March 2014 , from 1130am to 5pm : seminar and booklaunch.
Cumann na mBan was said to be 'incredible in its militancy' : Eithne Coyle (Cumann na mBan President) recalls how ... "...as things developed in 1922 , we could see that the Free State was toeing the line for Britain . Nearly all the girls stayed Republican , but the men seemed to waver....we offer no apology to the rulers North or South of this partitioned land in asserting our rights as freeborn Irish women to repudiate that Treaty and the Imperial Parliament of partioned Ulster . We fight for an Ireland where the exploitation of Irish workers by imported or native capitalists will be ruthlessly exterminated . (We will) put an end for all time to that state of chaos and social dis-order which is holding our people in unnatural bondage...."
Born into a strong republican family in 1897 in Donegal, Eithne Coyle was 20 years of age when she joined Cumann na mBan and within two years she had established a branch of the organisation in Cloughaneely, in West Donegal. She was also active in the Gaelic League and contributed articles for the 'Irish World' newspaper in New York.
She was active at this time in republican circles, carrying messages, reporting back to the local IRA HQ on the movements of enemy forces and assisting in fundraising activities, all of which brought her to the attention of the paramilitary RIC resulting in her house being raided a number of times. Following one such raid, she was arrested and imprisoned in Mountjoy Jail in Dublin , from where, in October 1921, she escaped and made her way to Donegal. The following year she was caught with IRA orders and updates and was imprisoned again and, after her release, she was elected as president of the Cumann na mBan organisation, a position she held from 1926 until 1941. Eithne Coyle died , age 88, in 1985.
You can meet representatives of the Cumann na mBan organisation on Saturday, from 11.30am until 5pm approximately, 29th March 2014, in Wynn's Hotel in Dublin city centre , where the 100th Anniversary of this proud Irish republican organisation will be commemorated and a new book on the organisation will be launched.
