Bhí ról lárnach ag mná in Éirí Amach na Cásca. Tugann an leabhar nua seo léargas ar dheonacháin nár aithníodh na mban i dtreo ghníomhaíochas réabhlóideach, ag féachaint ar na hidé-eolaíochtaí cumhachtacha – an náisiúnachas, an sóisialachas agus an feimineachas – a bhí taobh thiar de bhunathrú sochpholaitiúil chun feabhais na hÉireann sna deich bhlianta tosaigh den 20ú aois.
This is a free event, all are welcome and light refreshments will be served.
