Women's History Wednesday

     Some of my favorite women, the O’Halloran sisters of Clare.  When their landlord attempted eviction, these seriously hardcore girls defended their home and family with boiling water and a commandeered bayonet!  For a firsthand account as told by their brother see this site--http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/history/bodyke_evictions/frank_ohallorans_account.htm
