"Cummann na mBan Pin Badge"
This badge represents the Irish republican women’s parliamentary organisation, established on 2 April 1914 in Dublin. It acted as an auxiliary arm of the Irish Volunteers. The principal aims of the organisation were to advance the cause of Irish liberty and to organise Irish women in the furtherance of this object, to assist in arming and equipping a body of Irish men for the defence of Ireland and to form a fund for these purposes, to be called The Defence of Ireland Fund.
