MU Library will celebrate  the annual Explore Your Archive campaign this year with an exhibition entitled ‘Five Women, Five Moments: an exhibition celebrating women in the archives at Maynooth University Library.’ The exhibition highlights archival material relating to five notable women drawn from our collections in Special Collections and Archives, including Margaret Grubb, Caitlín Hutchinson, Teresa Deevy, Sister Majella McCarron, and Niamh Bhreathnach. The women selected are vastly different, but each has contributed to the history and culture of this island. The exhibition focuses on a key moment in each of the women’s lives, its impact, and the fascinating documents that help tell their story.
The exhibition will be on display in the foyer of the John Paul II Library until the 5 December 2023, and a digital exhibition is available to view here
