    (transcript of accompanying audio) The very nerve of Sinn Féin sets my teeth on edge. The one woman that they have thrown as a sop to the women of the country has her interest neglected and what is one to say of Cumann na mBan. Surely it is their special duty to concentrate on the election of their own president. Why should the work be left to the chance care of outsiders, as they are so fond of calling us. They're too busy running after the men - the camp followers! <i>Extract of letter from Meg Connery to Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington, December 1918 (NLI MS22684)</i>
