Monday 4th November 2019 at 11am - Josie McGowan: A Brief Flame
Lecturer: Mícheál Ó Doibhilín,  
Josie McGowan was only 20 when she died from injuries received in a Dublin Metropolitan Police baton charge. A member of Inghinídhe nah Éireann and later Cumann na mBan, she had taken an active part in the Easter Rising, fighting in Marrowbone Lane Garrison. After the Rising she remained an active member of Cumann na mBan, paving the way for what was to follow.
Josie was the first Cumann na mBan member to be killed in the Irish rebellion, and was posthumously awarded a 1916 and a Tan War medal, but left no record of her actions.
Mícheál Ó Doibhilín has spent almost 15 years tracking down this elusive young girl’s life. He is the author of several books including “Joe Poole – the sixth invincible?” and “Anne Devlin – the bravest of the brave”, and is currently writing a biography of Josie McGowan.
