Groves, Patricia

Patricia Groves is a successful screenwriter whose Irish Film Board-funded short comedy Rapunzel - The Blonde Years screened at film festivals around the world in 2008 and 2009. She was born in Bristol and lives in Maynooth, County Kildare. She was inspired to write this book by a fingerprint in the dust of history -a small plaque high on the wall of the AIB Bank in O'Connell Street, Dublin, at the corner of Parnell Square. Standing in the queue in the bank in 2006, she spotted the small, circular plaque simply says 'Ladies Land League (1881-1882)'. Intrigued, she began researching, and this book is the outcome. She works in Trocaire as a Campaigns Officer.
