Ireland has issued this limited Euro silver coin in honor of Dr. Kathleen Lynn - a pioneer and revolutionary who was particularly committed to disadvantaged mothers and children. The motive features Dr. Kathleen Lynn in the foreground and two mothers with their children in the background.

The design refers to the founding of St. Ultan's Hospital by Dr. Lynn and Madeleine French-Mullen, where sick infants were treated. The inscription "DR. KATHLEEN LYNN," her birth and death dates, and the denomination are also included in the design.

Dr. Kathleen Lynn

This limited edition commemorative coin pays tribute to Dr. Kathleen Lynn. Her pioneering work on behalf of children and the poor, and her work in politics all contributed to her life as a remarkable revolutionary.

She was born in County Mayo in 1874. Although this was almost 30 years after the great famine, poverty, disease, and hunger were still widespread throughout Ireland. Witnessing such misery affected her so much that at the age of 16 she decided to become a doctor.

Dr. Lynn’s work with Dublin’s inner-city poor convinced her of the need for a hospital to provide medical care and educational facilities for deprived mothers and children. This led to her, along with Madeleine ffrench-Mullen, setting up St. Ultan’s Hospital in 1919. The initial focus of the hospital was on treating sick infants and by 1937 it had become the specialist center for the BCG vaccination in Ireland.

Dr. Lynn was politically active during the 1913 Dublin Lock-Out, the 1916 Rising, and the War of Independence. She was chief medical officer of the Irish Citizen Army and a member of the executive committee of the Irish Women’s Suffragette and Local Government Association.

She died in 1955 and was buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin, with full military honors.
