1242) Grace Gifford

Grace Evelyn Gifford Plunkett (1888 – 1955). Irish artist and cartoonist who was active in the Republican movement. She married her fiancé Joseph Plunkett in Kilmainham Gaol only a few hours before he was executed for his part in the 1916 Easter Rising.
Her sister Muriel was married to another of the future leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising, Thomas MacDonagh.

- "The three sisters all had red hair and were very striking and beautiful and could not help but be noticed."  https://www.writing.ie/…/marita-conlon-mckennas-rebel-sist…/
