Last weekend I went on a walk entitled Irish women of war & peace. It was in part to celebrate International Women’s Day, hence the focus on women who were active in Ireland in the early 1900s. This photo is a re-enactor performing as Lady Gregory. If you’ve never heard of her, well shame on you! but I suppose I can tell you a few facts. She was heavily involved in the arts in Ireland, especially the Irish Literary Revival. She helped set up the Abbey theatre, along with the likes of WB Yeats.
If you are interested there is loads more on wikipedia.
