From 10th June 2021 to the 14th July 2021, Clifton House in Belfast, along with our partners, will run a series of unique free events to celebrate the life, legacy and relevance today of Mary Ann McCracken, on what would have been her 250th birthday.
 
Mary Ann McCracken (1770-1866) was born and lived in Belfast.  In life and in history she was often overshadowed by her brother, executed United Irishman Henry Joy McCracken. Mary Ann, like many other remarkable women of her time, were often written out of history. However recently her name and her achievements are becoming more well known. Mary Ann was an abolitionist, social reformer and activist who fought for the rights of women and championed the disadvantaged at both home and abroad. She lived a long life that encompassed the most turbulent years of Irish history. Her radical, humanitarian zeal and generous strength of character were indefatigable, and her contribution to Belfast life is still felt and celebrated today.
