'I got things done' The Remarkable Story of Mary Elmes Exhibition
Mary Elmes was an extraordinary woman from Ballintemple in Cork who travelled to Europe during the 1930s to help war-torn refugees. In 1942, when it became evident that Jews were being deported to their death, she risked her life smuggling children to safety in the boot of her car. When the war was over, she married and settled down in France, never speaking about what she had done. This Exhibition tells her story.
