The Women of Easter, 1916

Easter Rising, Enniscorthy 1916: writing about a revolution (Irish Times, 26 Mar 2016): Three writers remember three women – George O’Brien his grandaunt Greta Comerford, Roddy Doyle his grandaunt Una Brennan and Colm Tóibín his neighbour Marion Stokes

Una Brennan, about whom Roddy Doyle writes in this article, was my great-grandmother. My mom was named after her, and one of my sons is named after her husband.
