What would Kathleen Lynn – political activist, suffragette, pioneering doctor and the only female commander during the 1916 Easter Rising – say to the recent cuts to rural GP services in Ireland in 2016? Artist Deirdre O’Mahony is channeling the sentiment and energy that she imagines Kathleen Lynn would bring to social media to draw attention to the precarious state of primary healthcare in rural Ireland, highlighted in the? #?NoDoctorNoVillage? General Election campaign.
Deirdre is encouraging people to like and share Kathleen’s page on Facebook, to join the conversation on Twitter and add your voice to the campaign for a sustainable primary healthcare system in rural Ireland.
Curated by Catherine Marshall for Kathleen Lynn; Insider on the Outside, a programme of commissioned and curated works celebrating the life of Kathleen Lynn for Mayo as part of the Arts Council’s 1916 celebrations.
