Jacinta Prunty

Jacinta Prunty is head of the Department of History at Maynooth University, director of the MA in Historical Archives and a member of the editorial board of the Irish Historic Towns Atlas, Royal Irish Academy. A Holy Faith sister, Jacinta has published on the slum geography of nineteenth-century Dublin and the mission of Margaret Aylward (1810-89), foundress of the congregation. Her comprehensively-researched volume Our Lady of Charity debunks the sensationalist myths of the Magdalen laundries in Ireland.
