The Forgotten Lives of the Women of Cahir

Women are all too often overlooked in history. The Daughters of Dun Iascaigh, written by the Cahir Womens History Group, addresses this imbalance by profiling the lives of over 20 women from this Tipperary town. The book highlights some fascinating but previously overlooked stories. In this podcast I interview three contributors Josephine O'Neill, Maurice Casey and Annette Condon who reveal intriguing stories about rebels, nuns and revolutionaries from Cahir in the last century.
