This single-authored article draws upon Irish and Spanish primary sources to show how first and second generation Irish women migrants, succeeded in assimilating in Spanish society in the mid-eighteenth century. The advancement of schools and hospitals is examined, alongside the women’s development of networks of power and influence. It examines women in the key towns of Madrid, Barcelona, Valladolid, Burgos, Santiago, Ferrol, Pontevedra, Seville and Cadiz. The study is a revised and extended version of an invited conference paper given at the Rocky Mountain Medieval and Renaissance conference on ‘Borders and Frontiers in the Medieval and Early Modern World’ held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2002.
