Constance Markievicz 150th Anniversary Event


Sinn Fein Deputy Leader Michelle ONeill and Sinn Fein representative Rita O'Hare read historical documents relating to Constance Markievicz and other Irish women revolutionaries at the American Irish Historical Society on Wednesday May 15th.

Torrential rain and storms did not deter an audience of about 50 coming to hear Michelle talk about women in Irish politics, focusing on her own experience.

The event was organized to mark the 150th anniversary of  Markievicz’ birth by event director Sophie Colgan and Society chair Brian McCabe.
