The Gaelic tradition is highly sympathetic to its women protagonists.

It has plenty of them and they have plenty to say for themselves, not all of it genteel. This series of poems provides a continuum from the ancient tales of the Tuatha de Danaan and the Red Branch up to an instance of politicised defence of folklore at the cusp of the second millennium. It is followed by a translation of the Lament for Arthur OLeary composed, as was the custom, over the course of the laying out of his body and his funeral, by his widow Eibhlin Dhubh Ni Chonaill (c.1743-?) in Co.

Cork in 1773. Eibhlin is one of the great poetic voices of the Gaelic tradition and the Lament one of its finest poems.
