Rose Young

Rose Young was the daughter of John Young. She was very interested in the Celtic Revival. She learnt and taught the Irish language and took part in the events organised by the Gaelic League

She and her friends organised the Glens Feis. The Feis celebrated the history, customs, mythology and language of Ireland.

It must have been a curious existence for Rose, living within the staunch Unionist Young family, all the while embracing the revival of Irish culture and its links with the Home Rule movement.
