Quick overview The Celtic ties of Scotland, Ireland and Wales have been interwoven for generations.

€17.50

Celtic women, both 'ordinary' and 'extraordinary' have often been overlooked in
recorded history, while their male counterparts hogged the limelight. Too often written
by the victors, and written by men, for men, the incredible stories of Scottish, Irish
and Welsh women have been all-too-often banished to the footnotes of our nations'
interwoven histories.

This collection brings together the stories of those women already well-known, whose
place in history is significant and remembered - or often misremembered - and those
women whose mark is found in the shadows, women whose stories are now uncovered
and celebrated in a new light. Women like Iseabal Ni Mheic Cailein, Jessie Mann and
Helen Crawfurd from Scotland, Petronilla de Meath, Grainne ni Mhaille and Agnes Clerke
from Ireland, and Gwenllian ferch Gruffudd, Nell Gwyn and Laura Ashley from Wales,
whose shared Celtic history and experiences bear remarkable similarities.

Feisty and Fiery and Fierce brings together a 'coven' of 30 badass Celtic women whose
stories challenge the idea that the women of the past rarely did anything worth
recording. The stories of these women, and their true mark on history, will entertain
you, enrage you, uplift you and inspire you.
