A brush with greatness

By Dermot - 13th Mar 2019

RCSI, Accenture and Business to Arts unveiled a series of new portraits of eight historical female leaders in healthcare at RCSI on Tuesday 5 March. The Women on Walls campaign aims to enhance the visibility of historical female leaders in healthcare to inspire future generations. Pictured above is the portrait of Dean Mary Frances Crowley (1906 – 1990). Born in Wexford, Mary Frances Crowley undertook her professional training in Britain, earning her Registered Nurse Certificate in 1935.  Crowley founded the Nursing Training School at the Eye and Ear and became Director of Nursing Studies. In 1974, her ambition of many years was realised with the establishment of a Faculty of Nursing at RCSI, the first of its kind in Ireland or Britain.
