GRANUAILE Sea Queen of Ireland, for Children

Written by Anne Chambers.

Biography for Children 9-12. The adventures of the pirate queen and chieftain Grace O’Malley who ruled by land and sea over four hundred years ago. We get to know what Ireland was like for a young girl growing up in the 16th century before joining Grace aboard her galley and after many adventures sail with her to London for her famous meeting with Queen Elizabeth I.

Anne's biography of Grace O'Malley for young people is now an E-Book.

A new edition will also be published in March 2014 by The Collins Press, Cork.

"I hope this will make it easier for young people, especially those doing school projects/exams etc, as well as parents and teachers, to have the factual information about this extraordinary woman, in an accessible format."
