    Photos of Women IRA Fighters To Make Your St. Patrick's Day a Little More Bearable

    There are currently swarms of drunken buffoons wandering around major cities punching people for not wearing green, making it impossible to get around without being harassed. Despite this American tradition of getting plastered on St. Patrick's Day, there's a lot of history that has been erased from our collective consciousness about Irish resistance from British colonialism.

    If you're like me, and trying to avoid shit-faced crowds of police and their friends, you might want to check out these vintage photos of women fighters in the Irish Republican Army in Belfast in 1970.
