Radical! Women and the Irish Revolution, Julie Morrissy

    Radical! Women and the Irish Revolution, Julie Morrissy


    Radical! Women and the Irish Revolution is a new pamphlet of poems, images, translation, and research notes created by Julie Morrissy. The pamphlet is a result of Morrissy’s time as the NLI’s Poet in Residence, an initiative undertaken in partnership with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and the Decade of Centenaries Programme, which ran between June 2021 and June 2022. 

    Radical! Women and the Irish Revolution arises out of Morrissy’s research in the Reading Rooms of the NLI, and on walks, bike rides and excursions in her local area and around Ireland. The work draws on Morrissy’s collaborative and expansive approach to her work, which explores how poetry can situate us in our daily encounters with the world. Drawing on the intersections of crisis and daily life between 1912-1923, the poems use documentary, archival, and lyric genres to explore the lives of revolutionary women in Ireland.
