The timely 40th anniversary reissue of the definitive biography of Ireland’s pirate queen. When Baptista Boazio published his world map in 1612, Grace O’Malley was the only woman of power represented.

The timely 40th anniversary reissue of the definitive biography of Ireland’s pirate queen. When Baptista Boazio published his world map in 1612, Grace O’Malley was the only woman of power represented.

Forty years ago, Anne Chambers’ groundbreaking biography put Grace O’Malley on the map again when it became a milestone in Irish publishing and the catalyst for her restoration to political, social and maritime history and in schools ’ curricula. This international bestselling biography draws in Ireland’s great pirate queen from the vagueness of myth and legend and presents the historical reality of one of the world’s most extraordinary female leaders.

This handsome new hardback edition brings Grace O’Malley’s story to a new era awakened to the once-forgotten female voices of history.

Praise for Anne Chambers’ Granuaile 'You cannot be what you cannot see, and with women all too often airbrushed from history, the importance of this biography cannot be underestimated.' Director, National Women’s Council of Ireland 'A superbly researched work … it salvages the 16th century Mistress of the Western Waves from the rather frivolous folklore which surrounds her.' The Irish Times 'A historical reality which is equally if not more compelling than the legend.' Sunday Tribune 'Grace O’Malley … a woman who can truly claim to have been 400 years before her time … and Anne Chambers’ biography is as innovative as its subject.' Enda Kenny, former Taoiseach of Ireland
