Sabina Higgins, wife of President Michael D. Higgins, has visited their friend Margaretta D’Arcy in Limerick Prison.
Ms D’Arcy, the 79yr old Irish actress, writer, playwright, and peace-activist is a member of Aosdána since its inauguration and is known for addressing Irish nationalism, civil liberties, and women’s rights in her work. Last week she was imprisoned for her involvement in a protest against United States military stopovers at Shannon Airport.
