My writing as a blogger, historian and curator has focused on the role of Irish women in wider Irish society in the early to mid-twentieth century with a particular focus on the years between 1920-1950. I also write blog posts, articles, papers etc. on wider historical and cultural topics covering women’s history, working as a museum professional, cultural travel and my experiences as someone who sees the world in an alternative way. My articles include:
