Marking International Women’s Day and History Month, PATH BREAKING WOMEN OF NUI GALWAY is a visual history exhibition that foregrounds 12 women, each a former faculty member or student of NUI Galway, who have made remarkable contributions, across the arts, sciences and political life, in the years around 1916, or subsequently in the  rst decades of Irish independence. 

The project was supported by the IRC New Foundations scheme 2015 (Decade of Centenaries), the School of Political Science and Sociology, the Centre for Global Women’s Studies and the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies, NUI Galway. It is led by Professor Niamh Reilly, with contributing researchers Mary Clancy and Dr Muireann O’Cinneide, in association with the Gender ARC research network and University Women’s Network at NUI Galway.
