March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2024, historian and author of ‘Winnie and George’, Allison Murphy, discusses the life and times of the Trade Union activist and Republican icon, Winifred Carney. For many years, Winnie was written out of history, known only as ‘James Connolly’s Secretary’. This talk will explore the true story behind this iconic woman – ‘The Typist with the Webley’.

Belfast City Councillor and community activist, Clíodhna Nic Bhranair, will explore Winnie’s lasting legacy in the city and beyond, and how her activism and politics continues to inspire women across society today.
