Description

This remarkable book provides an account of the history of Ireland like we've never seen before. Told through the prism of the lives of twenty-one extraordinary women, it offers an alternative vision of Irish history, one that puts the spotlight on women whose contributions have been forgotten or overlooked.

From the oldest woman in Ireland, whose bones were found beneath the Poulnabrone dolmen, to the modern-day founder of a 3D printing company, this book introduces us to amazing women whose stories were shaped by the centuries in which they lived.

"An engrossing selection of capsule biographies of some of those whose work is well worth remembering," Five stars, Mary Carr, The Irish Mail on Sunday .

"A brilliant way of bringing to life the lives of women who would otherwise be forgotten or who might not have been known at all. [Through Her Eyes] covers such an incredible spectrum of women; there are 21 extraordinary stories - and brilliantly told. Patrick Geoghegan, Talking History , Newstalk

"This well-researched book looks at Irish history from the Neolithic to the digital era through the lives of 21 women. Standout figures include Lady Sligo, Hester Catherine Browne, who did much to help her tenants during the Great Famine, Letitia and Naomi Overend, who left their Airfield farm to the State, and Jemma Redmond, a biotechnologist who 3D-printed human tissues."
Brian Maye, The Irish Times

"I was delighted and learned so much from Through Her Eyes: a history of Ireland in 21 women. It will inform my next trip to Ireland when I will seek out those places associated with many of these remarkable women." Dr Dymphna Lonergan, Tintean, Australia

"Anyone with an interest in Irish history will be excited to have a new piece added to the puzzle. Through Her Eyes tells the tale of 21 women who helped shape modern Ireland, but whose names and whose accomplishments have been forgotten by most. Sunday Business Post

"Clodagh Finn delivers a celebration of womanhood... rare, inspiring women whose message is clear for everyone out there - if you have a dream, seize it, and let the naysayers go hang." David Lawlor, Irish Daily Mail
