Short biography
Dorothea Marguerita Callan Macardle; alternate form is Macardle, was a daughter of Sir Thomas Macardle, the owner of the Dundalk brewery Macardle, Moore & Co. Ltd. Politicised after the Easter Rising she adopted republican views different to the rest of her family and supported the IRA and Sinn Féin during the War of Independence by working in the Publicity Department. She opposed the Treaty and supported the Republican forces in the Civil War. She subsequently became a founder member of Fianna Fáil and was theatre critic for the Irish Press. She broke with the party in opposition to the 1937 Constitution which she felt diminished the role of women. In 1936 she became Vice-Chairperson of the National Council for Women and from 1949-51 she was Vice-President and then President of the Irish Association of Civil Liberties.
