    Abstract

    The history of women and crime is a poorly documented aspect of the lives of Irish women in the nineteenth century. Contemporary writing on the subject was very limited despite the great interest in the whole area of criminology.1 Much of the reason for this, surely lies in the fact that crimes by women constituted only a small fraction of known crime, and this more often than not was of a petty nature. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate who these women were, what crimes they committed, what happened to them in prison and where they went upon discharge.
