Read full description of the books:



Grace O'Malley (Granuaile) was a legendary Irish pirate chieftain and Gaelic chieftain who was known as such ephitet's as 'The Pirate Queen', A Most Famous Feminine Sea Captain, 'Nurse to All Rebellions' and 'A Notable Traitoress'

This book traces her life. perhaps in too little detail, and perhaps does not quite do justice to this fascinating women. This is a work of non-fiction, but I believe there was enough material at hand to give a fuller and more readable picture of this Irish Boudicca of the seas.
Mostly it is a social history of Ireland at the time, it's colonization by England and the atrocities committed by the English invaders against the Irish (as well as Irish chieftains against their own).
The role of women is examined to show just how Granuiele broke the mould, and the upheavals caused by the change from tribal Gaelic society to English law (It seems that women played a greater leadership role in some cases in the former.
We also read of her famous meeting with Queen Elizabeth, the possible fate of the Spaniards from the Armada marooned in Ireland and a chapter on her illustrious descendants.
