Women of many Aliases and Many Newspaper Column Inches - more new stories

The stories of the women from Farmfield and St. Joseph's Inebriate Reformatories are arriving in our inbox daily. Here are three more for you. Meet Ellen Flynn, she of the many aliases; Winifred Sullivan, who led an irregular life, with several spells in the workhouse and the Toomey sisters Bridget (also of several aliases) and Mary, whose frequent appearances in the press make for a fascinating story.

There are now twelve stories of the reformatory ladies for you to read here and we have received shorter reports of a further eight, who will eventually be featured in a document noting all those about whom very little could be found. Sixty six more stories to come!
