with Maeve O’Riordan
Little is known about the women of the Irish Country House (or the “Big House” as it is often referred to). Often, these women are remembered only for the dowries they brought or the sons they bore. This talk will tell the life stories of women living in these houses during the period 1860-1914, using their letters, diaries and other personal material.
