THE managing editor of the coveted Royal Irish Academy’s Dictionary of Irish Biography was in Killarney at the weekend to deliver a fascinating lecture on the role of revolutionary Irish women and the wider world.

Dr Kate O’Malley, who is a historian and writer, had a captive audience in the Muckross Gardens Restaurant and her engaging talk offered a wonderful insight into the hugely influential role played by women.

The Dictionary of Irish Biography is Ireland’s national biographical dictionary which was devised, researched, written and edited under the auspices of the Royal Irish Academy.

The online edition covers over 10,000 lives and it is an indispensable work of reference for scholars, journalists, broadcasters, genealogists, diplomat, and the general reader interested in Ireland’s past or in biography.

It outlines the lives at home and overseas of prominent men and women born in Ireland, north and south, and the noteworthy Irish careers of those born outside Ireland.
