This Friday and Saturday, the SIPTU Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon District Council will hold a seminar at Lissadell House in Sligo to mark the centenary of women's suffrage.

The Markievicz / Partridge seminar will mark 100 years of the achievements made by women in the Irish trade union movement and in Irish politics.

The event will recognise the contribution Countess Markievicz made to the trade union movement and women in politics, and her ancestral home - Lissadell House - will host the event.

One of the owners of Lissadell House Constance Cassidy is among the speakers at the 2-day event, along with Minister of State for Education Mary Mitchell-O'Connor, Tish Gibbons of SIPTU and Labour historian Therese Moriarty.
