Our Wicklow Women Project

To mark the 100th anniversary of the People's Representation Act of 1918 (which allowed women to vote for the first time) Our Wicklow Heritage invited members of the public to submit stories of women  that have made a contribution to our local areas, county Wicklow, the country or internationally. We received such a positive feedback and ended up contributing to a National exhibition, producing our own county travelling  exhibition , hosted talks and events including  a very entertaining re enactment event in Greystones harbour courtesy of local schoolchildren. We also  produced  a souvenir booklet, which, along with all the stories  can be downloaded below. Enjoy or celebration of  ‘Our Wicklow Women’ and please hit the 'contribute' button if you would like to share yours.
