‘There came to me also a most famous feminine sea called Granny Imallye ... with three galleys and two hundred fighting men ... She brought with her her husband for she was as well by sea as by land well more than Mrs Mate with him. This was a notorious woman in all the coasts of Ireland ...’ Sir Henry Sidney, Lord Deputy of Ireland, 1576

Though shaped by her times, she shattered the mold for women of her day. She would be a formidable figure in any era, including our own.
