Grace Continued

Part 1

After the untimely sentencing and subsequent death of her new husband, Grace Gifford herself became incarcerated in the very Gaol in which her husband was killed.

Grace opposed the Anglo-Irish Treaty and was arrested during the Irish Civil War and brought to Kilmainham Gaol. She only spent a few short months here, but during her time she put her artistic talents to work and painted her cell walls.

I was lucky enough to visit both Grace’s cell as well as Joseph Mary Plunkett’s.
