Some fabulous unpublished photographs of Maud Gonne have appeared in a new Irish documentary on TG4, Scéalta Grá na hÉireann, including a picture she carried around with her all her life of her son Georges, who died aged two. (And whom she attempted to reincarnate in a sex-magic scene that resulted in the birth of Iseult… if Maud’s love of a good story is to be believed).
My favorite is this undated picture of her as an old woman, most likely taken by her grandson, Tiernan McBride.
