Abstract:

"The Catholic Guides of Ireland was founded in 1928 in Dublin and soon spread throughout the thirty-two counties. This colourful history of the all-female organisation is essentially a history of women in Ireland during the 20th and early 21st centuries." "It moves through the formative years of the 1930s, charting its sometimes fractious relationship with the Catholic church, to the war years of the 1940s, when the Girl Guides, through participation in activities not normally open to them, grew in confidence and camaraderie, perhaps sowing the seeds for the women's liberation movement of the next generation." "The history then takes us through the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, charting the seismic shifts in society and noting how the Guides continued to play an important role in providing a social forum for girls and young women." "It notes the efforts made by the Guides towards promoting peace in Northern Ireland during the 1980s, and the landmark change in logo and uniform in the 1990s, marking the more liberal and multi-denominational thought and outlook of the organisation." "Their awareness of the demands of a modern society prompts the Guides to adapt and continue to bring Guiding to girls and young women in the twenty-first century. Therefore, in the spirit of adventure, fortitude, readiness and courage, this is their story."--Jacket.
