My first field of interest was in politics, war, settlement and society in late medieval and early modern Ireland. This research opened up an interest in where and how women's contributions fit in these histories, and how these had been forgotten and / or elided. More recently I have been engaged with the histories of modern Irish women, in particular first wave feminism, women during the revolutionary decade, 1912-1923, Irish women and nationalist propaganda, 1917-1923. My current research is on gendered and sexual violence in revolutionary Ireland. I remain fascinated by the transmission and impact of memories of war, violence and resistance to colonial power in Ireland, from the early modern to the modern.
