This item is from the collection of Agnes Smith. Agnes Smith’s sister, May Smith, was a member of Cumann na mBan and was in Boland’s Mills during the Easter Rising. When Agnes died in 1978 the collection passed to Julia Cunningham (Agnes’s first cousin) and then to James Cunningham who died in 1978. The collection then passed to the donor, Catherine Cunningham.
