This morning.

Dublin city centre.

Out of over 200 public artworks in Dublin city, only seven are in memory of historical Irish women.

Six women are celebrated to be precise, whereas 48 historic men are remembered for their achievements and accomplishments.

That’s why EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum placed a plinth on O’Connell Street this morning asking why female trailbazers – like aviator Mary Heath – have been so overlooked by Irish history.

 

Blazing a Trail: Lives and Legacies of Irish Diaspora Women, runs until March 31 at EPIC, Custom House Quay, North Dock, Dublin 1.
