The narrative of Margaret McCoubrey’s life not only reveals the extraordinary experiences of a particularly strong-minded activist but also throws fresh light on the debates, campaigns and controversies of some of the most turbulent years of Ulster’s history. During a period of rapid, and often dramatic, change the voice of Mrs McCoubrey was frequently raised in support of not only women but also children and indeed the working classes generally. Her energy and commitment to a seemingly diverse, but in fact interconnected range of concerns, illustrate her central importance to Irish social history.
