About this Event

Author Malachi O’Doherty outlines his own personal research into the life and times of Dungannon born Methodist, Margaret Noble, who leaves Ireland to become a revolutionary nationalist in India.

As part of PRONI’s programme to mark International Women’s Day, PRONI is delighted to welcome author, journalist and broadcaster, Malachi O’Doherty, who will explore the legacy of Margaret Noble, an Irish teacher, author, social activist, school founder and disciple of Swami Vivekananda. In India, she would adopt the name Nivedita meaning the ‘dedicated one’. Sister Nivedita remains one of the most influential female figures of India. Several schools and colleges have been named after her. In 1968, the Indian Government issued a postal stamp in her memory.

Malachi is a familiar voice and face on Radio Ulster and BBC1 NI politics shows. He is a prolific reporter who has been published in The Belfast Telegraph, The Irish Times, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Observer and The Scotsman. His published books include Gerry Adams: An Unauthorised Life, On My Own Two Wheels, I was a Teenage Catholic, and more recently his first novel, Terry Brankin Has A Gun.
