Prints by David Rooney
Winifred Carney (1887–1943), was born in Bangor, Co. Down, and reared in Belfast. She was involved in socialist and suffragist movements in Belfast, and from 1912 served as secretary of the Irish Textile Workers' Union. She joined the Irish Citizen Army, and served in the GPO during Easter week as James Connolly’s personal secretary. On her release from prison in December 1916, she renewed her republican and socialist activism.
