Founded in 1914 as a female auxiliary to the Irish Volunteers, Cumann na mBan adopted a badge featuring a rifle intertwined with the letters ‘C na mB’. Join Paul Gosling, GMIT and Ailbhe Rogers, Maynooth University as they explore the origins and design of these badges from base-metal emblems of membership to mementos of service made from the finest materials.

If you happen to have a Cumann na mBan badge please bring it along with its story.
