This coin pays tribute to Dr Kathleen Lynn and her pioneering work on behalf of children, the poor and her work in politics, all contributing to her life as a remarkable revolutionary.

She was born in County Mayo in 1874. Although this was almost thirty years after the great famine, poverty, disease and hunger were still widespread throughout Ireland. Witnessing such misery affected Kathleen so much that at the age of sixteen she decided to become a doctor.

Her work with Dublin’s inner-city poor convinced her of the need for a hospital to provide medical care and educational facilities for deprived mothers and children. This led to her, along with Madeleine French-Mullen, setting up St Ultan’s Hospital in 1919. The initial focus of the hospital was on treating sick infants and by 1937 it had become the specialist centre for the BCG vaccination in Ireland.

Dr Lynn was politically active during the 1913 Dublin Lock-Out, the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence. She was chief medical officer of the Irish Citizen Army and a member of the executive committee of the Irish Women’s Suffragette and Local Government Association.

Dr Lynn died in 1955 and is buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin with full military honours.

Delivered in a presentation box with certificate of authenticity.
