Rattigan, C. 'Unmarried mothers and infanticide in Ireland, 1900-1950' [poster] Dublin: Trinity College Dublin. Long Room Hub, 2006. ('Unlocking the Treasures' Long Room Hub Launch Posters: 2006)
Infanticide was committed regularly in Ireland during the first half of the twentieth century. It was a crime that was closely associated with unmarried mothers. Most single women charged with infanticide or concealment of birth during the first half of the twentieth century were from working-class backgrounds and had been employed as domestic servants. This project will also examine infanticide cases that were tried in Northern Ireland and bring to light infanticide cases involving Irish women that came before the courts in Britain during the period under review.
Exhibited at 'Unlocking the Treasures', a colloquium and poster exhibition to mark the launch of the Long Room Hub on June 14th 2006
