Our next public talk takes place on Saturday 26th April at 4.30pm in the Cobblestone, Smithfield and will mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Cumann na mBan in April 1914.

Cumann na mBan
Cumann na mBan

Cumann na mBan was founded in Wynn’s Hotel, Abbey Street, on 2nd April 1914. At that meeting, attended by approximately 100 women, it approved its Constitution; its stated aims being:

To advance the cause of Irish liberty
To organise Irish women in the furtherance of that objective
To assist in arming and equipping a body of Irish men for the defence of Ireland
To form a fund for these purposes to be called the ‘Defence of Ireland Fund’.

Dr. Mary McAuliffe, who is a lecturer in Irish Women’s History at UCD and is President of the Irish Women’s History Association, will address the meeting.

Mary will discuss the founding of Cumann na mBan, explore the role women played in the nationalist movement, the debates that emerged regarding that role, and the nature of its relationship with the wider women’s suffrage movement.

All welcome. Free Admission
