The Women of Influence Exhibition

The Women of Influence Exhibition

This exhibition celebrates the lives and work of nine Irish women whose contribution to the national and cultural story of twentieth century Ireland has often been overlooked.

Among the women featured in this exhibition is Agnes O’Farrelly, who was born in Virginia, County Cavan in 1874, and went on to become a Professor of Irish at University College Dublin. She was also the first female Irish-language novelist, a founding member of Cumann na mBan, and fourth president of the Camogie Association.
