"Yet in spite of a deepening interest in the work of Irish women writers, reinvigorated by #WakingTheFeminists (2016) and ‘Fired! Irish Women Poets and the Canon’ (2017), the archival profile of individual women writers has not been significantly raised. Fired! draws particular attention to the neglect of earlier generations of Irish women poets, and to the fact that their work is both out of print and largely unrepresented in the archive. When I began work on Poetry by Women in Ireland: A Critical Anthology 1870–1970 (2012), only two of the fifteen women I chose had named archives in institutional repositories."
