Margaret Skinnider 1916 Heroine, the Monaghan Connection
For North Monaghan, one of the most interesting stories of the 1916 era is that of Glasgow-born Margaret Skinnider who, as a member of Cumann na mBan and the Irish Citizen Army, fought in St. Stephen’s Green, under the command of Michael Mallin, and was seriously wounded in combat.
When and where did Margaret Skinnider, daughter of James Skinnider from the parish of Tydavnet in Co. Monaghan, Ireland, get her passion for freedom and justice? The Margaret Skinnider Appreciation Society has been established to promote Margaret’s memory. This book gives the background story to the Monaghan connection with many unpublished photographs.
