Dr.Máire O”Shea, republican and socialist, died on March 6th 2004, aged 75.


Dr.Máire O”Shea,happily worked with anarchists on several campaigns of common interest such as abortion rights and ‘Trade Unionists & Unemployed Against the Programme’. Living in England for many years, she was an eminent psychiatrist with the Midlands Health Authority where she was a pioneer of patient-centred psychotherapy instead of ECT and drug treatments. She was also an active member of her trade union, MSF.

A brave woman, she campaigned in Birmingham for the release of the Birmingham Six. In 1985 the English police charged her, under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, with conspiracy to cause explosions. Gaining support from her union and from the Irish and left wing communities, the police case collapsed in court and she was acquitted. Generous to the last, she directed that after a wake in her house that her body be donated to medical research at UCD.
