Una O Higgins OMalley was born in Dublin on 25 January 1927 and was less than six months old when her father Kevin OHiggins, was shot dead on his way to Mass by fringe Republicians. A committed political activisit who campaigned to end the violence in Northern Ireland, Una resolved to help people from both sides of the breach in their efforts to forgive, as she had done those killers of her father. This steadfast mission resulted in the opening of the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation. Contributors include Garrett Fitzgerald, Mary Robinson and Linda Hogan. Remembering to Forgive celebrates the rich, rewarding and rewarded life of Una OHiggins OMalley.
