Gregory Isabela Augusta 5.3.1852 - 22.5.1932
Irska dramatičarka (na znamki IE - 941) in ustanoviteljica Abbey Theatre se je po smrti svojega moža začela ukvarjati z zbiranjem irskih ljudskih pripovedk  in gibanje. Skupaj z Williamom Yeatsom in drugimi je leta 1899 ustanovila irsko literarno gledališče, ki je pozneje postalo Abbey Theatre. Tu je Lady Gregory več kot 30 let pisala scenarije, vodila ansambel po ameriških turnejah, in napisala okoli 40 gledaliških iger. Med njena najboša dela spodajo komedije Spreading the News (1904), Hyacinth Halvey (1906), The Rising of the Moon (1907), and The Workhouse Ward (1908) in njena tragedija The Gaol Gate (1906). Prevajala je Moliera. Spodbujati je delo mlajši irskih pisateljev.
Na privesku sta še:
Sinead Bean de Valera, Constance Markiewicz in Maud Gonne McBride.

Lady Gregory (on stamp IE-941) was an Irish  playwright, folklorist, and a founder of the Abbey Theatre. In 1880 she married the elderly Sir William Gregory, a noted member of Parliament, and after his death, turned her abundant energies to the collection of Irish folktales and the movement called the Irish Literary Renaissance. In 1899 she helped with William Yeats and others develop the Irish Literary Theatre, which subsequently became the Abbey Theatre. For more than 30 years Lady Gregory directed the fortunes of the  Abbey: conducted rehearsals, wrote letters, read scripts, led the company on American tours, and, most importantly, wrote about 40 plays for it. Her best short comedies, however, Spreading the News (1904), Hyacinth Halvey (1906), The Rising of the Moon (1907), and The Workhouse Ward (1908), resemble the works of a miniature Moliere; and her short tragedy The Gaol Gate (1906) is comparable to John Millington Synge's masterly Riders to the Sea. She translated Moliere and encouraged the work of Synge and younger Irish writers.
