’The book... is a fitting tribute both to Grace O’Malley and to Anne Chambers’ dedication and tenacity.’ Her Excellency, Mary MacAleese, President 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
’Chambers has founded an international interest in a woman who was centuries ahead of her time... a woman once air-brushed out of history but now re-born largely because of Anne Chambers’ dedication to her legacy.’ Connaught Telegraph
’It is only now that women are beginning to achieve in politics, business and in the maritime field the goal set for them four hundred years before by Grace O’Malley. This book will be an inspiration to women throughout the world.’ Mary Harney, TD.
