On Friday 21 April, as part of the Women’s History Association of Ireland annual conference, a History Ireland ‘Hedge School’ debate took place in the Mechanics Institute, Middle St, Galway, entitled ‘Now you see them, now you don’t’: women in the Irish revolution.’

This explored the role of women in the revolutionary decade, as activists, participants and witnesses. The debate was chaired by History Ireland editor Tommy Graham, and the panelists were Mary McAuliffe (UCD), Elaine Sisson (IADT), Linda Connolly (UCC) and Conor McNamara (NUIG).
