Motion submitted in the name of Cllr Mannix Flynn:- (Referred from the South East Area Committee December 2020)

“That this committee of DCC support the erection of a plaque to commemorate and honour the actions of Violet Gibson who shot Mussolini wounding him in 1926. 

Born in Dalkey and raised in Merrion Square, Violet Gibson was a committed anti-fascist.

After Gibson's failed attempt, she was set upon by Mussolini's supporters, and would likely have been lynched had the police not stepped in and arrested her. She suffered various cruelties and indignities within the fascist prison system, and was then deported to England, sparing the Italians the embarrassment of a public trial. Her family had secretly arranged to have her committed to an asylum – St. Andrew’s Hospital in Northampton, where Lucia Joyce, James Joyce's daughter, would later be committed.

Despite repeated pleas for her freedom, she spent the rest of her life in St. Andrew’s, dying in 1956.

It suited both the British authorities and her family to have her seen as "insane" rather than as political.

It is now time to bring Violet Gibson into the public’s eye and give her rightful place in the history of Irish women and in the rich history of the Irish nation and its people.”
