This site is intended as a platform for comment, opinion, analysis and stories on the Cumann na mBan organisation. As we approach the centenary of its foundation we hope to find new stories, documents and photographs previously not featured in the public domain. We are looking to source any memoribilia or other items that help to give a greater insight into this group of revolutionary women.


We have selected some pictures from behind the camera taken during making of Cumann na mBan documentary.
