The Mary Mulvihill Association was recently formed to commemorate the life and work of science writer and broadcaster Mary Mulvihill, who died after a short illness in June 2015.

Mary Mulvihill – Galapagos Islands

Her many diverse and wide-ranging achievements include writing Ingenious Ireland; Ingenious Dublin; editing Stars, Shells and Bluebells: Women Scientists and Pioneers; and Lab Coats and Lace: The Lives and Legacies of Inspiring Irish Women Scientists and Pioneers and creating a series of innovative RTE science documentaries.

She also founded Wits – Women In Technology and Science – the Irish advocacy and networking group, which brought women across all Stem (science, technology, engineering and maths) sectors together.

Her final contribution was as a tour guide, introducing Dubliners and visitors to the capital city’s charms and producing podcasts for those who wanted to explore the island further.
