In the age of reconciliation, political commemoration and art in Ireland are controversial and Gerry Hunt’s historical graphic novels on periods of Irish rebellion are no exception. One particular aspect of memory still being negotiated and challenged is the place of women in Irish rebellion. Recognizing the importance of storytelling form in nonfiction comics, goals and narrative choices in historical texts, and the interaction of narrative and public memory construction, this study uses narrative criticism to consider the portrayal of women in Irish rebellion and revolution as told in Hunt’s graphic novels. As contested participants in a contested history, the status of republican, and even loyalist, women in Irish memory has been complicated, but Hunt’s acknowledgement of their roles both as women (mothers, sisters, wives, lovers) and as warriors (medics, dispatches, fighters, protestors) in revolution helps to demonstrate their inextricable place in history.
