Clodagh Finn, Author – Thursday 14th November, 6pm Regent House

Clodagh Finn is a journalist and author of ‘Through Her Eyes: a history of Ireland in 21 women’ and ‘A Time to Risk All’, a biography of Mary Elmes. She has worked as a columnist, sub-editor and feature writer for several newspapers, including the Irish Examiner and the Irish Independent and as a freelance writer and editor in Paris. She has a degree in French and Archaeology from UCD and is particularly interested in writing about overlooked women from history.

Clodagh will join TWG in Regent House on Thursday 14th November at 6pm to discuss what inspired her to research and write ‘A Time to Risk All’ about Mary Elmes, the Trinity College graduate who was an aid worker during the Spanish Civil War and later rescued hundreds of Jewish children from Nazi concentration camps in the south of France during World War II. Mary Elmes is the only Irish citizen to be named ‘Righteous Among The Nations’ by Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre, for her rescue efforts.

Clodagh will also discuss her just-released book ‘Through Her Eyes: A new history of Ireland in 21 Women’, one of whom is another Trinity woman graduate Rosy Gibb.  

Clodagh Finn Author will talk to TWG on 14th November Regent House 6pm
