Product Description

Recently I was asked to make a silver brooch a replica of one that was worn in the past  Cumann na mBan (Women’s League) I saw an original pin up close and took a sketch, there were two types one large one worn on the lapel and a smaller version worn on the hat. These brooches are hand made to order so please be patient when you order one you will be advised how long it takes to make we usually allow one week from time of order.

The constitution of Cumann na mBan contained explicit references to the use of force and arms against crown forces in Ireland. Under its constitution, the primary aim of the organisation was to “advance the cause of Irish liberty” and “teach its members first aid, drill, signalling and rifle practice in order to aid the men of Ireland”.

And this being the 100th year of the 1916 Rising I thought well it would be a fitting tribute to those women who had being previously forgotten and who proudly fought along their male comrades for Irish freedom. History
