Irish Republican Women in Scotland and the Irish Revolution

Presented in partnership with 1916 Rising Centenary Committee - Scotland

This talk by Niamh Coffey will explore the heroic actions of Irish women in Scotland during the Irish revolutionary period, 1916-1923.


These women smuggled guns, carried dispatches, and concealed their fellow comrades from the authorities at great risk to their livelihoods. However, their stories have largely been sidelined.


This talk will also explore their treatment and experiences after the Revolutionary Period, using the richly detailed Military Service Pension Collection.

Niamh Coffey is a historian who completed her PhD at the University of Strathclyde in 2023. She specialises in the history of the Irish revolutionary period in Britain, and the experiences of women.
