Over 400 years ago Granuaile became a legend. As both Pirate Queen and Chieftain of the O'Malley clan, Granuaile or Grace O'Malley, challenged the accepted ideas of sixteenth century Ireland. She manipulated the turbulent political environment, ignoring conventions, to become one of the most powerful leaders in the country. Using state papers and manuscripts of the period, Anne Chambers reveals the woman behind the legend.
