Of the women who were caught up in the turbulent events of 1798, only a few left behind a written record of what they witnessed. Most of the known accounts, written as historical narratives, are gathered together for the first time in this book. Some are well known to rebellion scholars, while others are more obscure and have either never been published or have appeared in an extensively bowdlerized form. The editor has gone back to the original manuscripts in many cases and reproduced them faithful to their original wording. The book contains extensive annotations, with biographical sketches of the narrators as well as references to a host of associated individuals that will interest not only students of the rebellion, but also local historians and genealogists. The Narratives offer a unique window on the lives of Irish women more than two centuries ago, and their words have a stirring poignancy that continues to make their accounts compelling reading.
