The Mary Ann McCracken Foundation is delighted to announce an extra special addition to its Mary Ann birthday event on 8 July at 7pm. Now featuring Baroness May Blood – ‘a current day Mary Ann’ – attendees will hear how she too has committed her life to fighting for the needs and rights of the people of Belfast and further afield.

In addition to hearing about Baroness Blood’s achievements, the Mary Ann McCracken Foundation will also highlight who and what Mary Ann championed in her 96 years including education, abolitionism, women’s and workers’ rights. Then you, the audience, will be encouraged to interact sharing your thoughts on how we as the citizens of Belfast and the Mary Ann McCracken Foundation can ensure the work of these remarkable women is remembered, and where necessary, continued today.
