Welcome to the Grace O'Malley Web Site

Author ANNE CHAMBERS welcomes fans to the official website of Ireland’s Pirate Queen - Grace O’Malley.

Fearless leader by land and by sea, political pragmatist and tactician, rebel, pirate and matriarch, the ’most notorious woman in all the coasts of Ireland’ GRACE O’MALLEY challenges and manipulates the turbulent politics of the 16th century.

Breaching boundaries of gender imbalance and bias, she re-wrote the rules to become one of the world’s first documented feminist trail-blazers.

In GRANUAILE - the original best-selling biography of this historic icon, from rare and exclusive contemporary manuscript material ANNE CHAMBERS draws Ireland’s great pirate queen in from the vagueness of myth and legend and presents the historical reality of one of the world’s most extraordinary female leaders.

Granuaile Trail 21 : ASKEATON CASTLE. Co Limerick

 

The principal castle of Gerald FitzGerald, the 'great' Earl of Desmond, Askeaton, Co. Limerick.

In 1577, while leading a plundering attack on the Earl's lands, Granuaile was captured and imprisoned in the castle.

In 1578, to divert English attention from his secret negotiations with the King of Spain, the Earl handed Granuaile over to the English government.
