View all copies of this ISBN edition
Mrs O'Donoghue's life encompassed ninety-seven years - the larger part of the 19th century and over one-third of the 20th. Her parents were of old Anglo-Irish stock from the West of Ireland, her father, Charles Lambert, being the son of Walter Peter Lambert of Castle Ellen, Athenry. Her mother, Jane Catherine Irwin, was related to the Phibbs of Sligo and Mayo. Her cousin Isabella was mother to Sir Edward Carson. Nannie Lambert was born into an upper-middle-class family in Dublin, lived all her life in that city, and died there. She married William Power O'Donoghue, sometime professor of music at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin. Mrs O'Donoghue was, firstly, a horsewoman whose advice on riding and hunting was eagerly sought by the lady side saddle riders of the day. My biography of her includes much of the material from her two books on "riding for ladies". She also wrote two volumes of poems and several novels besides being known for her musical ability - she and her husband collaborated in writing an opera. After being forced to give up riding after a serious accident Mrs O'Donoghue became a busy and prolific journalist - no easy accomplishment for a woman in the 1880s. She wrote for the Irish Times and most of the well-known magazines from 1880 virtually until her death, being best known for her early 20th century humanitarian writings on social issues and animal welfare. The National Library of Ireland and Trinity College, Dublin have some of her books as also do the British Library, Cambridge University Library and the library of Yale University, Connecticut, USA.
