Meet A Woman for our times

On International Women’s Day 2018,  as we look to  seek out ‘mighty’ women as inspiration, encouragement and torch-bearers for those most in need today, we need look no further than Nano Nagle – a woman for our times. “Meet a woman whose love was stronger than the viciousness, greed and violence that swamped her city and nation. She was a ...
