Blazing a Trail Exhibition

Jan-Mar 2020 - Free admission

Blazing a Trail: Lives and Legacies of Irish Diaspora Women celebrates the lives and legacies of 21 pioneering Irish diaspora women of the 19th and 20th centuries who blazed a trail in a wide range of fields.  These women made their mark across the globe, innovating in every field and paving the way for others to follow, navigating a male-dominated society on their own terms.

The exhibition is a collaboration between EPIC, Herstory and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
