An historical biography for the 10-14 age group.
Gráinne Mhaol (Grace O’Malley) is one of the best known women in Irish history. She was a hardy sailor, a mother, and a chieftain’s wife, from the noble Gaelic lineage of O’Malley. From her castle on Clare Island she stood her ground against men on land and on sea. This book not only gives us an insight into life in the west of Ireland in the 16th Century, but also into the life of a determined woman who boldly took on life and made it her own.
