‘Irrepressible Women of Clare’ by Marie Connole has been extended until March 2022 at Clare Museum. The art project explores the experiences of women who lived during Ireland’s Revolutionary Years (1913-1923). The artist created symbolic portraits of five resilient women, accompanied by an animated video and posters. The women are Georgina Frost, Kathleen Talty, Kathleen Griffin, Peg Barrett and Beatrice Hare O’Brien.

The captivating video highlighting the women’s stories is available on YouTube under the title ‘Irrepressible Women of Clare’. This resource is aimed at anyone interested in learning more about this time period in Ireland from the perspective of women. The project is particularly suited to History Teachers and Art Teachers looking for new stories to interest students. Free Information Posters about each woman profiled are available from the ‘History Week’ section of website.

The exhibition is part of Clare County Council’s Decade of Centenaries programme. Clare Arts Office with the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media selected three artists to create work marking the Centenary in County Clare for 2021.
