Peig McManus

Peig McManus was born in 1939 and grew up in one of the last of Dublin’s tenements, under the shadow of the Second World War. She learned early about social barriers and, from a young age, set about a path of community activism and educational reform. Peig trained as a therapist and worked for many national organisations.

Now in her eighties, the mother of five recounts her journey to becoming herself in her unforgettable memoir I Will Be Good.
