In Plain Sight: Portrait of first female barristers unveiled
The double portrait is by Sligo-based artist Emma Stroude and depicts Frances Kyle BL and Averil Deverell BL, the first two women to be called to the Irish Bar in 1921 after the enactment of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act, 1919.
The painting was commissioned as part of our joint 'In Plain Sight' initiative with The Bar of Ireland.
In Plain Sight seeks to celebrate the achievements and enhance the visibility of women in the field of law that demonstrated significant leadership, influence and contribution to legal practice and education.
