The Mid Clare Commemoration Committee has been marking historic events in The Mid Clare Brigade area for the past ten years. During the Centenary of the War of Independence in Clare, the Committee is now working to acknowledge the role of Cumann na mBan in the area during this period. The role of women was pivotal but their recognition has been largely neglected. The Committee have now launched a schools project where students are invited to select Cumann na mBan members and document their life contribution to National Independence and a centenary commemorative booklet of the students work will be produced by the committee.

On Friday’s Morning Focus, Gavin Grace spoke to Mary Crawford, Chairperson of the Mid Clare Brigade Centenary Commemoration Committee.
