It seems that Ireland is lagging behind other nations in gender balance in promoting and exhibiting its history. This article seeks to interrogate current representations of women within what can be called “public history” in Ireland. It will also contextualize the integration of women as both creators and subjects of history over recent years. It will point to inadequacies, of course, but also examples of great practice that bodes well for the future.
