Usually Irish suffragettes didn’t hold demonstrations
like women in the rest of the United Kingdom.
They felt that they wouldn’t have had
had various methods of protest.
They included the militants
chaining themselves to railings,
setting fire to mailboxes and buildings,
going on hunger strike while imprisoned
However on 25th October 1910,
they did smash windows after a meeting
held in Greystones, Co. Wicklow
where the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Augustine Birrell was present.
Birrell was not in favour of getting the vote for women.
