Portrait by Szankowski

Countess Constance Markievicz was the first
woman ever appointed to the British House of commons .

I learned about this woman my first week in Ireland.
The Markievicz house is in Sligo town is where my cousin
Fidelma took me to get the papers on the Family.
I had been at the Lissadell house ( GORE _ BOOTH)
It was the first time I saw real forget me nots.
I grow them in Maine.
William Butler Yeats use to stay there,
My Cousin's grandmother is buried next to Yeats.

Markievicz was Jailed fighting In the Easter uprising 1916.
During that time it was called the IRA The Originals.

Not the Terriorest IRA later.
Constance was born to the Gore-Booth family.
He father was an arctic explorer, so she had an adventurous side.
She was a Feminist, a guerrilla fighter, an artist, a parliamentarian,
PRISONER and FUGITIVE.
Married Count Casimir Markievicz from the Ukrain.
There is a lot more on this interesting woman
check her out.
