Helena Moloney
Born: January 1, 1884 - Died: January 28, 1967

Helena Moloney (1884, Dublin, Ireland - January 28, 1967, Dublin, Ireland) was a prominent Irish republican, feminist and labor activist. She fought in the 1916 Easter Rising and later became the first woman president of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. In 1903, inspired by a pro-nationalist speech given by Maud Gonne, Helena Moloney joined "Inghinidhe na h√Čireann" (Daughters of Ireland) and began a lifelong commitment to the republican cause.
